News Links: Ching Ming Festival 2009

Here’s hoping everyone is having a reflective Ching Ming Festival

On to the news …


On the heels of her new ads for the Mainland’s South Bedding Company, there are reports that Cecilia Cheung Pak-Chi is about to return to the big screen with a role in Derek Yee Tung-Sing’s upcoming adaptation of the Gu Long wuxia novel THIRD YOUNG MASTER’S SWORD (三少爺的劍).  Cheung will supposedly play the female lead opposite Louis Koo Tin-Lok.  According to the reports, Cheung and the production company are now haggling over money as Cheung wants HK$4 million to HK$6 million for the film.  Previously, Shaw Brothers adapted the novel in 1977 with DEATH DUEL.  Directed by Chor Yuen, it starred David Chiang, Candace Yu On-On and … {drum roll} … Derek Yee Tung-Sing.

    I wonder if Jacky Cheung is acting in a new movie because he liked the project or because of financial pressure from the stock market meltdown? I’m glad to see him back because I think he is an underrated actor. sometimes he is too over the top, but overall I thought he was very good in most of his roles he did. I don’t know why I find this funny, but Jacky and Francis Ng should do a movie where they both have over the top roles and have an intensity showdown. maybe it’s only me, but won’t that be better than stuff like ‘Look For a Star’?…

    I saw those Rainie shots the other day and thought they were pretty offensive; who dresses up like an American Indian anymore like that? I’m old enough to remember how dumb it was when Cher did it for her “Half Breed” song.

    Good news about Ceci, of course. Copyright © 2002-2021 Ross Chen
