The highly anticipated third installment for the successful Rosy Business <巾幗梟雄> franchise is currently in busy pre-production mode. Producer Lee Tim Sing (李添勝) and returning scriptwriter Ip Kwong Yam (葉廣蔭) have recently confirmed their involvement in the project.
With the exception of Wayne Lai (黎耀祥), Rosy Business 3 will feature an entirely new cast. According to Tim Gor, he wanted his new cast to be younger and fresher, which led him to the choice of casting Myolie Wu (胡杏兒) and Edwin Siu (蕭正楠) to star alongside Wayne.
Rosy Business 3 will be a romantic drama that takes place in 1920’s Republican China, a period when the warlords and triads of China were at their highest power. Myolie will portray a spy, Wayne her colleague, and Edwin her first love, who eventually becomes an influential triad leader. Power, corruption, and camaraderie will be the themes that will be explored in this installment.
Myolie and Edwin did a private costume fitting in TVB City on October 2 to prepare for Rosy Business 3’s sales presentation trailer, which will be included in TVB’s 2013 Program Presentation event. Myolie explained that Rosy Business 3 is merely a working title, and she hopes that TVB will consider changing it so she can avoid comparisons with Rosy Business star, Sheren Tang (鄧萃雯), who Myolie allegedly “replaced.”
Although Tim Gor has full creative authority behind the production of Rosy Business 3, he has no say on determining the title itself, which is copyrighted by TVB. Myolie revealed that Tim Gor had not discussed the drama’s script with her in detail yet, so it is possible that there will be a name change in the future.
Nonetheless, Myolie has expressed her excitement to film Rosy Business 3, which will begin production in February 2013. The actress considers Rosy Business 3 to be her top priority, and she had to rearrange her February schedule in order to make room to film the drama.
Wayne did a private costume fitting on October 5. Unlike Myolie, Wayne did not think it is necessary to change the name of Rosy Business 3. He explained, “This name is just like a genre, a brand. For example, the cast of Forensic Heroes 3 <法證先鋒III> is completely different from the first two, yet it still earned really good ratings. [Rosy Business 3] doesn’t need to have the same cast. Even if Sheren and I aren’t included, it should still do well.”
Rosy Business 3 is planned for 30 episodes, and it will film at locations such as Sichuan, Guangxi, Fujian, Shanghai, and Zhejiang. Several reports have indicated that Sire Ma (馬賽) and Natalie Tong(唐詩詠) will also join the cast.
