PANG HO-CHEUNG SET PHOTOS

He didn't only have a rough time casting his actors, Pang Ho-cheung also lost his backing from Media Asia for his latest movie. The official reason from a Media Asia spokesman:

"It is because the changing of this project's production scale.  Having Sammi Cheng would make this movie become a major movie; it wouldn't be reasonable for that budget without Sammi Cheng."

Filmko is currently producing the film. You can see more set photos here.

It's a pity that Pang's involvement alone isn't enough for Media Asia to back the project. Not to mention Simon Yam.

Oh, well. At least it's still being made.

It would be funny if the film became a big hit and Sammi missed out, but I guess her star is still burning bright enough for her to not need any "wild cards".

Wait--does that mean Gillian Chung's star was fading when she did Beyond Our Ken, or is she just braver than Sammi?
