Best Actor Simon Yam Tat Wa would make his debut as a film producer in a film that he would star with Andy Tien (On Chi Kit) and Yuen Wah. The lead actress was originally intended to be Cya Liu, but due to endless offers to the Hong Kong Film Award Best Actress she would likely turn down the role.
Yam Tat Wa earlier returned to Hong Kong for a few months, after finishing the films on hand he went to the Mainland for quarantine and prepare for his "debut". Reportedly he would work with On Chi Kit on the new film LO GA FOR (OLD GUY). This would be the first time Yam Tat Wa would produce a film in his over 40 year career. No wonder he took on everything himself.
In the film, Yam Tat Wa would play a retired special agent. 20 years later he was again under special agent team's pursuit. In order to protect Chinatown he returned and discovered his protege betrayed him. The film earlier started production. Although the lead actor Yam Tat Wa would not join the team until the middle of the month, he still was busy with the film's pre production work. He even spent the Mid Autumn Festival at work. He happily said, "Taro and ling gok are very rare sights here. They are our childhood Mid Autumn treats, all my childhood memories are back."
The team originally wanted the Hong Kong Film Award Best Actress and Yam Tat Ming's management company colleague Cya Liu to star Even though she was busy with another film SAKRA (TIN LUNG BAK BO ji KIU FUNG JUEN) the film would be willing to accommodate. However she kept getting film offers and her rate could not compare to working full time in the Mainland. Her manager confirmed that currently she already had several scripts on hand and thus might likely turn down Yam Tat Wa's offer. The team already had two plans in place and the lead actress has yet to be announced.
