The reporter conformed with Chen yesterday, he admitted, "Right, I will start filming the movie next month, male lead is confirmed to be Andy Lau, still contacting mel Gibson & Gong Li, it will take at least 2 weeks to know, at this stage I cannot reveal anything more!”
When the reporter called Andy, through his assistant, he said, “Yes, he has accepted the offer, but who the other actors are in the movie he is not too sure."
When asked if Andy will follow the original script to act, said, “I will have to understand what the director wants, but I will refer to Mel Gibson’s acting too."
To have Andy acting, Polybona is increasing Andy’s fee from 12 million to 18 million, a jump of 6 million, when asked if he thinks his fee has too high a jump, replied Andy, “It is not convenient to say.”
Andy did not acknowledge his wife despite beign married. Nicholas Tse on the other hand is loving to his wife & family, this contrast has made Nicholas Tse winner of hearts of many. It was said that Andy in filming Shaolin Temple, durign interviews has always tried to talk on his wife too. In addition, he has asked the director Benny Chan to change the script, from a bad guy as a warlord that was to destry Shaolin temple, to a hero that saved the temple. He even shaved his hair before the director told him to, making director no choice but to change, so as to make him a good person.
It was also said Nicholas Tse too asked for change of script, giving the director a lot of headache.

He has no time for a celebration in HK, to continue with the joyous mood, director Benny Chan & crew held a special mini celebration party for him, on the cake were written 4 Chinese characters, 'Coming of Double Happiness', to congratulate him on his recent win at HKFA & on his going to be a father again the second time.
Nicholas Tse did not even have time to take off his injured make-up on the face, it was very funny, the workers teased that it must be the most special make-up for one to receive the award, after giving him Best Dress award, he should be given Best Make-up award.
The thing that made Nicholas Tse most delighted was the presence of his idol Andy Lau at the celebration party, thye opened champagne together. Andy was very caring to Nicholas, not only he helped him to cut the cake & gave them to the workers, he made fun of him. He sprayed champagne onto Nicholas when he was about to taste the cake, Nicholas was caught unprepared, he quickly put down the cake & hid behind Benny Chan.
Nicholas Tse & Andy each held a bottle of champagne toasting, wanting to bottom up & be drunk. On seeing this, director quickly stopped them, “If both of you were drunk now, who are to shoot the enxt scene? If you want to get drunk wit till the movie wrap up! We have bottom up then!” Nicholas & Andy could thus took a few mouthfuls, then together with Benny they continued with shooting.
Nicholas Tse has only cake for lunch, even the workers praised that he is hardworking.
Andy encouraged Nicholas that he should aim to get Best Actor next year, Nicholas felt the drive, he said after 4 months filming with Andy, they have a good relationship, he hopes both of them can next year enter HKFA for various award categories. This healthy contest will be ideal if it comes true.
Benny said there are many movies for next year, the opponents are strong, he trusts audience will support movies of different genres, probably both Nicholas & Andy can be nominated for Best Actor next year.

Shanghai World Expo opens on May 1, yesterday netizens revealed that the song, 2010 Welcomes You, which is sung by a group of singers, including Andy, Li Bing Bing, Liu Xiang, Li Ning & others were plagiarized, be it in melody cords, from a female Japanese soinger Mayo Okamoto in her 1997 song, “Where Is the Original You”. The netizens criticized strongly protection of intellectual property & crying ‘stop’ the thief, it is indeed satirical.
Said, "We have to wear thick costumes, all of us were wet with perspiration. The worst was because filming was done on a muddy area, it was slippery, real tough, even the photographer almost fell. I sustained some bruises at the back, my whole face was coated with mud the whole day. "
PIC BY ANNA, TQ!
A news report of an interview in TW recently reported that Andy talked about his wife & family matter, on this, Andy said the newspaper made a distorted report.
When interviewed by TVB entertainment programme, he said that it was supposed to be a special interview on the movie, but it turned out to be a family interview, the name of the movie was not mentioned at all. He feels that the news report just picked on a few words to create news. He had only mentioned that during filming he will think of his family members, but the report said he thinks of his wife.
Andy is busy with movie promo of late, He said he is a little like his father, because of work he sacrifice his family, & said that before the age of 18, he had not talked more than 10 words to his father.
Andy, Big S, Louis Fan, Xu Qiao, directors Wong Jin & Chen Xiao Dong & others were present at the premiere of Future X Cops in HK 2 nights ago. Wong Jin donated HK$50,000 to HK UNICEF in a cheque handover ceremony.
Andy held the hand of Big S to the stage, fans on seeing him immediately yelled loudly & incesantly cheering him. At the interview by host who had her dress buttoned wrongly Andy talked & laughed merrily.
He said the armor that he wore in the movie was fake, it is the result of special effects. During filming he wore only a green dress as the backdrop, only his shoes were heavy. He just needed to swagger like his usual way.
When the reporter mentioned that box office in TW is not satisfactory, he said he is not clear, he has tried his part, tried his best as an actor. Asked if he wishes to film a 3 D movie, he said it has to see if there is such a need, anyway, 3D movie is still very new, there is no need to rush in, do it when we have capability.
Andy had covered up his marriage before, recently Ah Sa & Ronald not only announced their secret marriage they announced their divorce. When asked if he has contacted Ah Sa, Andy said he did not contact her, asked further if it was because of her association with a tycoon in China that led to their divorce,
replied Andy, “Nowadays I don’t know how to tell truth & false from news, there is only one thing, Ah Sa is a friend I know, my point is to trust her & support her.” Does he feel the matter will affect her image? Said, “This cannot be helped, after this image, feelings will be different, but the Ah sa that I know will still be the same.”
In the movie, Big S forced her kisses on him, Andy teased that she even thought of doing it during rehearsal. Big S joked that she had to pull his ears down to force the kiss, in actual fact, thinking back she feels that she was too willful, after all Andy had not accepted her! She laughed, “After filming I could not sleep at night, the feeling was exciting & mysterious, as when I was young my school bag had his photos, until now he has no change at all."
Future X Cops had a premiere last night in HK @ Time Square at Causeway Bay. Leads Andy, Big S, Xu Qiao, Louis Fan were present.

We did as far as possible close to Hollywood style, the laborious work was anticipated, it was also a new experience.” He hopes it will be a successful attempt of special effects for HK movies.

FUTURE X COPS SPECIAL EFFECT AT POST-AVATAR PERIOD
In the dictionaryscience-fiction fantasy movie, it always does not have the name ‘Hong Kong’ , even if there is, it is always ‘not up to the mark’ & others.
Wong Jin is good at comedy movies, thsi time he picked Andy to film Future X Cops with only one aim, to set the first step for HK successfully in the field of special effects.
Andy has worked with Wong Jin several times. The collaboration as described by Andy is ‘very un-Wong Jin’ this time. To Andy 10 years later, Wong is still very meticulous, this movie from beginning to end took one & a half year, to make it better, it made many changes a the final stage.
Though the special effect is hard to be comparable with that of Hollywood, esp now post Avatar, the demand of the audience gets higher. Andy said at first he was wary that the special effect will be laughed at by people, told Wong to fiom a comedy movie like before, not because he cannot act as future cop, but Wong Jin insisted of taking the first step, very brave indeed!
Said Andy, "Making an exception, an attempt that may not be successful, but if one does not tale the first step, forever there is no new path, no new look.”

The hidden marriage has invited a lot of criticisms, Andy said during the demise of his father-in-law, he was too sad, luckily he has the support of his fans, some said he was worried fans would be unhappy when he was open with it, this indeed is belittling to his fans, he turned around to say that was a lowly thought.
In the colorful world he is in, he ahs never stray, as Andy Lau, he has benefitted a lot, also sacrifice a lot,
said, "For a thing, what I give, is not a sacrifice, it is balance, as it is your belief."
ZLQ is a low-keyed woman behind Andy, in actual fact, she is one who is much loved.
