Production News: Sammi vs Miriam Lunar New Year 2010

When Alien got together with Predator back in 2004, it didn’t matter who won because we all lost (even in ways the filmmakers probably did not intend).  Now, five years later, a pairing almost as epic is going to be made as reports have surfaced suggesting that Sammi Cheng Sau-Man and Miriam Yeung Chin-Wah are joining forces with Johnnie To and Wai Ka-Fai for a Lunar New Year picture that will hit the screens in time for holiday season 2010.  Hopefully, this time HK entertainment fans will all win.

Late last week, HK media reports emerged suggesting that Media Asia has been looking to put together a Lunar New Year film after seeing the success that Mandarin Films had with ALL’S WELL ENDS WELL 2009 (HK$24.6 million).  Reportedly, after some urging from entertainment mogul Peter Lam Kin-Ngok, Johnnie To Kei-Fung and Wai Ka-Fai have agreed to shoot a holiday picture starring Sammi Cheng, Miriam Yeung, Andy Lau Tak-Wah and Leon Lai Ming.  It will be the first Lunar New Film from To and Wai since 2002’s FAT CHOI SPIRIT.  According to the reports, the film will be a romantic comedy and shooting is set to begin in September.

Both Media Asia and Wai Ka-Fai have confirmed that a Lunar New Year project is in the works but no other details have been released:

Media Asia spokesperson Ms. Leung: “The company will indeed be shooting a Lunar New Year movie this September.”

Wai Ka-Fai: “Yes, we’ll be doing this movie. Right now, we’re working on a script. There’s not much that we can make public at this point.”

The Sammi Cheng-Miriam Yeung Media Asia project will be competing with Mandarin’s ALL’S WELL ENDS WELL 2010 starring Louis Koo Tin-Lok, Sandra Ng Kwun-Yu and Ronald Cheng Chung-Gei.

    When I first heard this news, I was quite excited. Now I’m wondering if the acting styles of these two ladies may not mesh completely.

    Maybe they could do a buddy cop film? They’ve each made cop films already, so why not? Copyright © 2002-2021 Ross Chen
