Wong Kar-wai in line for Mei Ah movie

Friday, June 13, 2014


Mei Ah Entertainment will get Wong Kar-wai, the award-winning director of In the Mood for Love, to shoot a movie next year.

Mei Ah chief executive Patrick Tong Hing-chi hinted it will be a romantic movie and the main actor is someone "all women are crazy about."

But he refused to say whether it is another cooperation with Tony Leung Chiu-wai, who starred in seven of Wong's 11 movies and won a Cannes Film Festival award for best actor for In the Mood for Love.

Mei Ah, the major film and TV drama distributor in Hong Kong, has invested in many of the films directed by Wong, including The Grandmaster, released last year.

Tong said the company will shoot another film next year, directed by Gordon Chan Ka-Seung, who filmed the Fight Back to School comedy series starring Stephen Chow Sing-chi.
