PRODUCTION NEWS:

Wong, First Vanguard set up fund

  • Hmmm … “the Bruce Lee biopic IP MAN” … the name of the guy the film is actually about is actually in the title … way to bolster the credibility of your Asian film coverage Western news media
  • The related Reuters article did the same thing: First Vanguard, Raymond Wong plan $100 mln movie fund
  • Longtime Asian film reporter, Liz Shackleton, got it right in her ScreenDaily report of the story
  • While I’m on the subject, it’s annoying when the Western news media constantly refers to Edison Chen as the star of INFERNAL AFFAIRSHe was in INFERNAL AFFAIRS for slightly longer than he was THE DARK KNIGHT.  Oh well, I suppose it can’t get much worse than THE DEPARTED being referred to as “… a remake of the Japanese film INFERNAL AFFAIRS.
