Stephen Chow breaks silence on Kitty Zhang's contract dispute

HONG KONG: Hong Kong actor-director Stephen Chow broke his silence Sunday regarding his entertainment company's contract dispute with Chinese actress Kitty Zhang and expressed that he will seek legal recourse, reported Hong Kong media.

Zhang, who is signed to Chow's entertainment company Star Overseas, had taken on a role in Chinese director Wang Quan An's drama series "White Deer Plain" without the company's knowledge.

Her decision had apparently raised the ire of Chow, who discovered her and cast her as a kind teacher in his 2008 film "CJ7".

"Am I upset? I think talking about it is pointless, everything will be done according to the law," Chow told reporters.

Zhang is the second actress in recent years to have had contract issues with Chow's firm.
