The film A WITNESS OUT OF THE BLUE (FAN JUI YIN CHEUNG) yesterday started production. Producer Derek Yee Tung Sing, director Fung Chih Chiang (Fung Chi Keung), actors Louis Koo Tin Lok, Annie Liu (Lau Sum Yau), Louis Cheung Kai Chung, Andy Tien (On Chi Kit), Philip Keung Ho Man, Jessica Hester Hsuan (Suen Huen), Ling Man Lung, Cherry Ngan Cheuk Ling, Fiona Sit Hoi Kei and Chan Kwok Bong attended the worship ceremony. Suen Huen said that this time she would suffer Koo Tin Lok's torture, as she was afraid that he would kick her off the stairs!

Playing a couple with Koo Tin Lok in the film, Suen Huen said, "We are the cute pair, not an usual one!" Goo Jai also said that they in the film had a love hate relationship. When asked if they would have any intimate scene, Suen Huen said no because in the film her romance with Goo Jai would only be decoration. Goo Jai also said that this would be the most realistic crime film, thus he would wait until the next film BACK TO THE PAST (CHUM CHUN GEI) to add intimate scenes.

Suen Huen continued that this time she had to play a visually impaired character. In the past she has played blind and went to a school for the blind to get an understanding, but this time she would not. She also revealed that in the film before they started dating, Goo Jai had a scene in which he had to beat her. "We will have to see how rough he will get. The script also says that I am powerless to strike back. For over a decade he hasn't done anything vicious. This time I am afraid that he will kick me off the stairs! I hope he will know to hold back, because I used to be very focused and would hit for real. I would be afraid of hurting my co-star." She also said that in order to handle this scene, she would first work out to prepare to get hit.

Goo Jai said that in the film he played a robber who was planning to rob a jewelry store and would shoot a robbery scene at a busy intersection. He has already applied for the required road blocks and probably would have a big scale and realistic shoot, because he would carry a machine gun to the robbery. Earlier a prop manager was sentenced for prop currency. Would the film use prop cash or avoid the trouble entirely? Goo Jai responded, "We won't avoid it, and it doesn't matter. We are robbing a jewelry store, and before get the jewelry we are already killing people!"

Cheung Kai Chung would play a cop this time. Yesterday he shot an injured look after a fight with the robbers. He said that the film would have a lot of heavyweight action and gun fights. He would try to perform the stunts himself, but if his performance would not be on par as the stunt actors he would not waste the team's time. In addition, a bird in the film was the key to solving the case. Thus Ah Chung had to ask a bird expert Lau Sum Yau for help. Sum Yau said that now she is learning to be with the bird and it is being trained to learn Cantonese. Reporters joked that would Sum Yau also have to learn Cantonese as well? She said, "I have to learn the tone of an expert, the pronunciation would be harder so I need time to prepare." Ah Chung said that he was afraid of birds. "The trainer told me to hold my hand out for the bird to bite to communicate and it would not hurt, but I was afraid and it still hurt. However I overcame it and now I already dare to touch it."

On Chi Kit recently became a father again. He admitted that he was still very happy, he would wake up with a smile every morning. As soon as he got up he would play with his son. He said that at first he was the most worried that his two and a half year old daughter would be jealous, but he never expected her to be a good sister. She knew to take care of her brother, so he relaxed very quickly. Does his son have a Chinese name yet? Andy said that his mother would ask a master to come up with a name. Would he try for another? He said, "I feel now is enough, let it be! However I feel my son is very tiny, my daughter is already much bigger. I would start to feel a little reluctant!"

As for how he would reward his wife Jessica C., Andy said, "I will give her whatever she wants, she is Wonder Woman in my heart. She is everything. After carrying the baby for nine months, after giving birth she very quickly recovered. The next day she was already able to walk, which was very amazing. My Mommy told me that when she had me, she had to lie in bed to rest for a month." However his wife reportedly lost a lot of hair after giving birth. He clarified, "Impossible, I lose more hair than her!" Speaking of playing a bad guy this time, as far as he knew he would have a gun fight with Goo Jai. Would he be more careful now that he is a father of two? He admitted, "I would, that's very natural. After my daughter's birth I no longer dared to repeat a lot of stunts. I didn't take as much risk as I used, because an injury would require a long time to recover. In addition the doubles are young and recover fast."

The Fox Media Group and Penguin Pictures joint release, Andy Lau Tak Wa produced, Wong Kwok Keung directed original mini series THE TRADING FLOOR last night held a celebration banquet and announced its second season will soon begin production. Wa Jai hoped for the original team to return. He joked that he would wait until the third season to participate.

Wa Jai, Francis Ng Chun Yu, Joseph Chang, Maggie Cheung Ho Yee, Patrick Tam Yiu Man, Poon Chan Leung yesterday attended the banquet. Wa Jai revealed that currently he is busy with his new film THE WHITE STORM 2 (SO DUK 2). Every week he worked for four days, a normal work rate. Because he had to work, Wa Jai put more effort into maintaining himself. "Don't you feel I am back to being handsome again?" Aside from movies, Wa Jai also had to prepare for his year end concert. Recently he was even invited to be an Oscar voter. "I have been invited, I haven't seen the qualifying films yet. Any voter who has not seen the qualifying films would not be qualified to vote. This time I am already very happy to be invited, I will be able to enjoy films and genres from different nations. (Would you have time to watch all the movies?) If I don't I would lose the voting qualification. I won't lie to everyone and say that I saw it when I didn't."

Wa Jai was rumored to be a father again. He denied it. "Earlier at the fan club meeting I already denied it. I will keep going. (Would you like to have a new member of the family?) I do, I wouldn't say I would dislike it. I let everything take its natural course."

Joseph Chang in the series needed someone to dub his Cantonese lines. Chang said, "Earlier when I made WILD CITY (MAI SING) (Soi) Cheang Pou Soi dubbed my Cantonese. (Would you learn Cantonese?) My language ability is okay, but Cantonese is rather hard." Chun Yu said, "Using all new language in a performance actually is rather dangerous."

This is the reason why Jane has to keep her relationship with Moji, her perfect half-Japanese boyfriend, a secret from Chut. Jane doesn't want her relationship to be destroyed at the hands of Chut, like every other one before. However, love isn't something to be kept a secret, and in the end, Chut finds out about Jane and Moji's secret relationship.

Wai Sze Nga said that recently she has been working on the film JOI GEIN UFO, in which she played a goddess in love with Tsui Tin Yau. Then she would work on another film THE WHITE STORM 2 (SO DUK 2). She said, "In this one I will play a cop, the character is really very different. However I finally get to work with Lau Tak Wa (Andy), which is every actor's dream. When I see Lau Tak Wa I probably will be very nervous. In the film we will have scenes together. However they will be action scenes and not romantic ones. I really want to have romantic scenes. The film also will have Sam Gor (Michael Miu Kiu Wai) and (Carlos) Chan Ka Lok."

Carlos Chan Ka Lok, Bryant Mak Chi Lok and Carmen Soup (Tong Ka Man) two nights ago attended the horror film BUYER BEWARE (GUK OK) premiere. Mak Chi Lok said that because of the film he developed a brotherly relationship with Chan Ka Lok. "We worked on location in Malaysia. Ka Lok got sick and lost his voice and everyday I brought him medicine. I went to the Genting casino with Tong Ka Man on our free time and won several hundred bucks. We bought durian to celebrate but Ka Lok couldn't have any." Mak Chi Lok praised Chan Ka Lok for being handsome and refined. He hoped to have a chance to work together again in the future. Outside work they also became friends as they often met for sports and leisure. Did the recently heartbroken Chan Ka Lok have any heart to heart talk with him? Mak Chi Lok said, "Rarely, we get it so I wouldn't ask. I would only keep him company."

Chan Ka Lok returned his strange experience while shooting the film in Malaysia for two weeks, as he had fever, sore throat and wisdom tooth problems. He did not even have the voice to deliver his lines. Once he returned to Hong Kong he was fine. He said, "Luckily Chi Lok was experienced and reacted from reading my lips. I thank him for taking care of me, but an argument scene would require further voice work." Chan Ka Lok said that this film was his and Mak Chi Lok's comeback film. "We didn't make a lot of movies before, but when we made this film another director asked us to perform."

Carlos Chan Ka Lok, Bryant Mak Chi Lok and Carmen Soup (Tong Ka Man) recently worked together on BUYER BEWARE (GUK OK). The trio while shooting in Malaysia ran into supernatural incidents. Chan Ka Lok said that in one scene he was shooting photos with a mobile phone at an unit. Due to an angle issue, he thought, "It would be great if someone would prop up my arm!" Then he really felt a force propping up his arm. After the shoot he realized no one was around. At the time he was a little scared, but he felt that someone was helping him.

In addition, Chan Ka Lok could not help but complain about the shoot. "I was sick for a long time when I made this film, toothache, fever and voice loss. I even had to see a dentist there. Several scenes even needed post production voice work. Everyone said that I was like that because I didn't participate in the worship ceremony, but as a Christian I couldn't." Mak Chi Lok and Tong Ka Man went to the casino on their free time. They said that they have never won money before, that day they bet on their hotel room number and won.

In the film they were all being scared. Would they like to try scaring people in their next horror film? Chan Ka Lok turned it down right away and said that special effect make up was quite a pain. He said that once he saw an actress' special effect make up that really had something burrowing in her arm. It was terrifying! Mak Chi Lok would like the chance to try special effect make up. Tong Ka Man wanted to be pretty. She said that this time she was possessed. She saw that her expressions were all very frightening. In addition, Chan Ka Lok in the film had a passionate scene and showed off his physique. He said that when he got the script it did not have any bed scene. Later the director felt it was needed. He happened to be working out for other jobs so it was perfect for the performance. As for how passionate the bed scene was, he said that everyone would find out at the movies.

Francis Ng Chun Yu, Nancy Wu Ting Yan, Ken Wong Tak Bun, Tony Wu Tsz Tung and director Sunny Chan Wing Sun yesterday were guest presenters at the Hong Kong dragon boat carnival and promoted their film MEN ON THE DRAGON (YIK LAU DAI SHOOK). Ting Yan was very popular with the dragon boat athletes. Ting Yan thanked Chun Yu for approaching her with the movie and bringing her to the silver screen. Chun Yu joked that other female stars were getting married, having babies and "retiring". Since Ting Yan was not a parent yet and had charm, he asked her to perform.

Chun Yu revealed that this production was very pleasant. He said that in the film he had to row the dragon boat. He would even flirt with the girls on the other dragon boas and ask, "What kind of dragon is yours?" Ting Yan said that in the film she did not have to row. She said, "This is my first film, a new beginning. I thank Chun Yu for asking me." Why would Chun Yu ask Ting Yan to make a movie? He joked, "The others were all married, having children, they have completed their historic mission and retired in glory. Since Ting Yan isn't a parent yet and has charm, I asked her."

In the film Ting Yan played a single mother. Chun Yu was her "soldier" (Someone who would do anything the object of his affection). Has Chun Yu been one in real life? He admitted that he has. "It's an interest, but even as a soldier you can't even go to places that you want to go. When you drive you have no destination, it like you are sleep walking. You have no idea of your own. (Did you get the girl?) Of course I would do that after I get the girl. (Didn't you waiting for the girl to make a move?) Even with pets, in the end you become the soldier."

Recently revealing that she has suitors, Ting Yan was asked if she had any soldier. She said that she would worry about it after her play. Soldiers might not wait for her, Ting Yan said that then they would not even meet the qualification to be soldiers. Would she ask her suitors to buy tickets? Chun Yu chimed in, "Getting tickets are the casual ones, what do you think Ting Yan is? You have to book shows for life." Ting Yan added, "Not the 20 some sea private show, if you are going to book book the big venue. It's a problem of sincerity."

John Chiang and Lee Lam Lam have been a model couple in the industry for 44 years.
John Chiang was linked to Valerie Chow while working on a TVB series 24 years ago
courtesy of

John Chiang Dai Wai earlier appeared on a radio program. Started as a child star, John Gor once was a Shaw stuntman. He caught the eyes of his mentor big director Chang Chen, with VENGEANCE! (BO SAU) he became Hong Kong's first "Asian Best Actor" in 1970 and rose to fame in the film industry. Back then he made countless classic martial art films for Shaw, but later when he became a director he mainly made heart warming films. He explained, "I feel that I would never be as good as Sifu Chang Cheh and Lau Ka Leung. Why would I want to destroy the image that Director Chang Cheh has given me for so long? I can't destroy that!" John Gor admitted that films that he directed were mostly critical but not commercial successes, including the 1986 film SILENT LOVE (TING BUK DOH DIK SUET WA) with Season Ma and first time lead actor Sean Lau Ching Wan. "I prefer to make heart warming films. Because those films didn't have huge budgets, and at the time I saw Lau Ching Wan on television and thought he was decent, very alternative, so I asked him to be the lead actor. Season Ma too. Although this movie didn't make money, but at least its word of mouth was good."

In the early 90s, John Gor sold all of his asset and migrated his entire family to Vancouver, Canada. He said aside from his daughter's education and 1997, the biggest reason was his extreme disappointment in the Hong Kong film industry at the time. "Back then I was extremely disappointed in the film industry. Everyone could still remember when the mob invaded the film industry, the film world's nature completely changed. Everyone was fighting over teaser sales and actors, for example overseas sales could be made with just Andy Lau Tak Wa's name, it was quite a mess! I felt that I no longer belonged here, so I decided to leave. I sold everything, I decided that I wouldn't be without my wife. Then as soon as I got to Canada, Sifu Chang Cheh asked me to make a series in Taiwan. Since Sifu asked I couldn't turn him down, so I came back."

John Gor was at the peak of his popularity when he wed Lee Lam Lam in 1974. John Gor admitted that he married early but he had no regret. "If I told you, back then I had no propositions you wouldn't believe me! Of course I did, but luckily at the time I really was very busy. I had too much to do. When my wife and I met, I was with Shaw and she was a Cathay actress. We originally didn't know each other, but she was very close with my family. Once a friend of ours got married and we met at that wedding. Perhaps this was the so-called love at first sight, so we gave it a try. As soon as we did we tried for over 40 years. I got married very early, but at that time what was I afraid of? I might as well! In addition back then we were with child, we had Yi Lan so we got married. I didn't feel marriage had much effect on me!"

John Gor and Lee Lam Lam were the model couple in the industry, but in 1994 when he returned to Hong Kong to make the TVB series FATE OF THE CLAIRVOYANT his marriage was rumored to be on the rocks. John Gor said, "Why would I be upset at that? I didn't care about what people said, those were rumors. They proved that I performed very well in that series!" Yet with his wife Lee Lam Lam's cancer diagnosis in 2011, John Gor stated that he would be worried no matter the illness was big or small. However he and his wife have seen through life and death. "When the old lady is sick, even with a common cold or cough I would worry -- not to mention it was early term cancer. I absolutely was worried, but the old lady comforted me instead! After chemotherapy she was in a lot of pain. Now her recovery is also because my wife was willing to accept treatment. The two of us actually aren't very afraid of death because everyone know people must die. The difference is who goes first. Even after we pass we wouldn't need to worry where to be placed or would anyone pay their respect. Our thinking is the same, after death we would only need to be cremated then have the ashes scattered then we would be fine."

Action film BIG BROTHER (DAI SI HING) held a press conference in Shangha, executive producer, producer and actor Donnie Yen Chi Tan and director Kam Ka Wai along with actors Joe Chen Chiao-En, Yu Kang, Bruce Tong Kwan Chi, Chris Tong Kwan Yiu, Gladys Li Ching Kwan, Chaney Lin (Lam Chau Nam) attended. Bona film CEO Yu Dong, producer Wong Jing also attended in support. Chi Tan hoped through the film to bring some positive energy to society. Speaking of the school violence problem, Chi Tan admitted that he ran into it while in school in the U.S. Luckily at the time Bruce Lee was very famous, everyday he dressed like Bruce Lee to school. Everyone also knew that he knew kung fu so he avoided being bullied.

Chi Tan gave his full support this time on and off screen. Chi Tan said, "I have always hoped that my movies would be able to bring some positive energy to society, as a filmmaker I have to be socially responsible. I hope through what little influence I have to bring some motivation to young people. The best place for this is at school." He also said that because he was also a father, everyday he faced a lot of educational problems with his children. Thus he hoped to make a movie that would be able to mix together education, positive energy and commercial elements. Adding in action he ended up with BIG BROTHER.

In the film Chi Tan played a teacher. As soon as he started on the job he ran into the crisis of school closing, at the same time he faced a group of poor performing and behaving students; he used unusual teaching methods with different problem students to resolve each student's problem. In his battle of brains and brawn with the students, Chi Tan not only pleaded but also used punches and kicks to protect this group of children. Speaking of playing a teacher, Chi Tan admitted, "As a father actually everyday I am learning to be a teacher. When I rehearsed with them, it was like communicating with the children at home. During the shoot, I really expressed my real experience."

The film had school violence scene. Chi Tan said that at school he too ran into school violence. "When I first went to school in the U.S., foreigners often discriminated against Chinese. Thus everyday I would encounter some school violence. Luckily at the time I was already studying kung fu. At the time Bruce Lee was very popular in the U.S. Everyday I dressed like Bruce Lee to school. Everyone knew I knew kung fu so they didn't bully me."

Chi Tan said that he was mischievous, exactly like the "problem student" in the film. Later when he became a parent, he paid attention to the children's home education. "I would understand in depth the stress that the students faced everyday, home, psychology, educational system and others. Everyone in the world would face school problems. I hope through my movie I would be able to bring some topics for everyone to discuss."

Chen Chiao-En talked about school violence. She felt that the basic reason was lack of communication. "Very rarely would you run into a teacher as enthusiastic as Big Brother Chi Tan. The teacher I played used other methods to get close to the students, but even more important is more concern. If you run into problems, you not only have to go to teachers for help but also communicate with each other."

As the main character of the film, Chi Tan said that he was very strict and demanding. The Chi Tan recommended director Kam Ka Wai admitted that when he learned that Big Brother Chi Tan asked him to direct he did not dare to believe it. "Actually I was a little afraid that I wouldn't be able to reach his demands, later whether on the set or in post production Big Brother Chi Tan kept leading us. He would use very interesting methods to tell the boring principles." Playing a mischievous female student Li Ching Kwan had car chase scenes in the film. She thanked Big Brother Chi Tan for his guidance, as he would always have some special suggestions to make the movie even better. As the antagonist Yu Kang "complained" a little about how demanding Big Brother Chi Tan was. "I started with the Jackie Chan Stunt Team, I really like to fight, but Big Brother Chi Tan is too demanding. He not only let me fight but also wants me to play the piano, which to me truly is painful. However I still have to thank him, because he gave me different space to develop."

Chi Tan said that actually everyone had a very tough time. I hope to use a little of my industry experience to give some newcomers their start. When I wrote the script I hoped to give them the scenes. Later the director asked me to play a teacher so everyone could see me fight. I was more demanding, every actor had to give their most realistic performance. This to them was very rare for their first acting experience. However when everyone watch the movie they won't feel they are acting for the first time."

Child actor Chaney Lin (Lam Chau Nam) played a young Chi Tan. He gave a martial art performance on the spot. Chi Tan praised him, "At such a young age he already has shades of me."

Tony Leung Chiu Wai wins Best Actor in Cannes with IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE
In 2000 Wong Kar Wai directed IN THE MOOD FOR LOVE brought Maggie Cheung and Tony Leung Chiu Wai back to the Cannes red carpet
courtesy of

Tony Leung Chiu Wai yesterday suddenly sent a text to the media. "All reporter friends how are you, I am Leung Chiu Wai. My management contract with Jet Tone has been completed and ended. From now on for any work need, you can temporarily contact my wife Lau Ka Ling. Thank you everyone." The unexpected "break up" announcement with Jet Tone has led to speculation everywhere.

Suddenly announcing his Jet Tone contract completion, Leung Chiu Wai ended his 30 year manager relationship with Wong Kar Fai. Carina Lau Ka Ling said, "I am only lending him a helping hand before he finds a suitable manager, I am just a contact!"

As for the reason of Wai Jai's departure from Jet Tone, Ka Ling said, "I have to respect Mr. Leung's intention and let him speak for himself!"
