News : Taiwan Heavenly King Jay Chou
Taiwan Heavenly King Jay Chou (Chow Kit Lun) after THE SECRET (BUT NUNG SHUET DIK BEI MUK) again wrote, directed and starred in the musical THE ROOFTOP . The film will be released on the 11th in the Mainland, Malaysia, Singapore and other locations simultaneously. Yesterday Chairman Chou, lead actress Li Xinai and producer Will Liu appeared at the Shanghai premiere. Chairman Chou took care of everything from directing, acting, composing, costumes, action choreography to editing himself, but Chairman Chou admitted that the action choreography was the most difficult because the action had to follow the beat. He also revealed that he originally was very worried about Li Xinai's performance because she had no acting experience. Yet as her acting gradually improved, he relaxed. Earlier Chairman Chou while promoting in Wuxi boasted that he would score his film over 100 points and described it as "three good movie". "Good with word of mouth, good with box office, good with award. Recently many movies have had high box office but not too good word of mouth. (Do you think it will win an award?) I didn't win any directing award before, just a new comer award." He also admitted that the film and music making processes were drastically different. Film production was a group collaboration but song writing was solo. "I have been bored and alone for a very long time. I don't have any siblings, so I like to work with good friends. In the film the redhead character was my middle school classmate."
