Derek Yee afraid of rejection from Lucas Tse

Yesterady reportedly director Derek Yee Tung Sing secretly planned for Cecilia Cheung Pak Chi and her son Lucas to perform in a film together, and even invited Best Actor Tony Leung Chiu Wai to be the lead actor. Siu Bo yesterday pointed out that nothing has been confirmed. He praised Lucas' natural performance talent and great potential in the film industry, but he had to consult Nicholas Tse Ting Fung, Deborah Li (Dik Bor Lai) and Patrick Tse Yin. He also said that earlier he saw Lucas turning down Stephen Chow Sing Chi and he was somewhat afraid. He said, "I saw on video Chow Sing Chi at the press conference trying to hold Lucas' hand but he swung away. He doesn't give any face to Sing Yeh, there is no way I am asking for it myself!"

However Siu Bo admitted that he has been waiting for the chance to work with Pak Chi. He said, "I don't like to force people. I wait until she gets her family settled, then I will think about the script. Even if the film is made it will be next year." Has he asked Leung Chiu Wai to work with Pak Chi? He said, "I didn't deliberately match them up, I still don't know."


Cecilia Cheung and Tony Leung?  WANT

Cecilia Cheung in "The Wandering Songstress"

A TV drama telling the story of famous Chinese singer Zhou Xuan has aired on Beijing TV station. Hong Kong singer-actress Cecilia Cheung played the "Golden Voice" singer in the drama. Zhou was a famous singer and film star in the 1930s and 1940s, who led a complicated and unhappy life marked by her failed marriages, illegitimate children, and suicide attempts. She was nicknamed "Golden Voice" by her fans for her extraordinary singing talent. Zhou died in 1957 at the age of 39 in a mental institution in Shanghai. [Photo: sina.com.cn]

There are a few more pictures at the source.  And if you follow that Wiki link, Ceci looks amazingly like Xuan.


Whoa, what is this?  I didn't even know she was ever in a drama.

FFA has been relocated [mod post]

Just to alert you guys, the FFA will be moved to Thursday, starting....THIS THURSDAY.  That will be tomorrow.  I haven't really decided at what time, but probably later in the day than the Saturday ones were.

New people:  FFA posts are weekly deals filled with randomness.  It's a good place to come out and say "hi" and get that first comment out of the way. ;)

So yeah, don't forget to drop by y'all.
