“War of the Genders 2” May Not Happen

By on January 7, 2013 in TV Dramas


It seems that the exciting rumors surrounding War of the Genders 2 <男親女愛2> may not be coming true after all.

Original War of the Genders producer Tsui Ching Hong (徐正康), who recently returned to TVB, revealed that he has intentions to film a sister production to the classic comedy drama. He plans to invite the majority of the original cast to return, including Carol Cheng (鄭裕玲), Dayo Wong (黃子華) Ram Chiang (蔣志光), and Kingdom Yuen (苑瓊丹).

Carol revealed earlier that Tsui had indeed approached her and Dayo about filming the possible sister production last November. Both Carol and Dayo had expressed their interest in returning; however, Carol is unsure if she would be willing to alter her regular lifestyle to accommodate the stressful filming schedule of a television drama. Carol stated, “It is not a matter of money, but there are many factors to consider. Of course I want to act with Dayo Wong again, but I have to see how my health situation is.”

Although Dayo is confirmed to return to TVB this coming May, it has been recently reported that instead of working on Tsui’s new production, Dayo has signed to work on a new comedy production with Friendly Fire <法網狙擊> producer, Man Wai Hung (文偉鴻). Dayo and Man Wai Hung have previously worked together on 2009’s You’re Hired <絕代商驕>, when Man was still working as director.

In a phone interview with Man Wai Hung, the producer admitted that he is currently working on the screenplay for an upcoming TVB production, but he did not reveal too much information about his possible collaboration with Dayo. He stated, “Dayo Wong is a very talented actor. It will be great if I can have the chance to work with him.”

    Multiple producers wish to work with Dayo; it is a matter of choosing the strongest script and cast to satisfy himself now.

    I hope it’s “War of Genders 2,” but if Carol doesn’t return, that would be unlikely.

      Dodo will only get older … if we don’t see it in 2013, likely we won’t see it ever.

      The police storyline was so cute too. I’m sad.

    Dayo and Carol together will be good.

    Regarding HK Stand-up Comedy, I had attended Dayo and Jerry Lamb show, I still prefer Jan Lamb. He is really funny

    By the way wondering how is Cheung Tat Ming getting on ?

    I would much rather see Dayo and Carol together again. I can’t imagine Dayo not choosing to work with Carol and producer Tsui. The key issue is probably Carol’s decision to film a series or not.

    As much as I think a sequel to war of the genders would be great, but I fear that it may be a bit late for carol to recreate her francis mo character or to better it since that was a character which needed a lot of energy and carol seems to prefer to relax these days, esp with her progressin age and started health concerns (whatever they may be). I think it takes a lot to keep up with Dayo and even if a sequel does happen, the chemistry between the two may not be as entertaining comedy-wise. Perhaps it can be replaced by another type of chemistry?

      I agree, especially her overly botoxed face… sorry to say, she is a brilliant actress but she seriously did too much damage to her face without her looking way too weird for everyday TV, more so TVB may be going HD.

      I wouldn’t mind seeing Dayo with Charmaine again, he brings out the best in his costars much like Wayne Lai, Kong Wah, Dicky Cheung and the gang. But not as you’re hired 2. Maybe another sort of story, another sort of series. Hopefully add in Power Chan too where he is at his best in comedy. I would love his sort of comical comedy vs Dayo’s deadpan comedy.

    Dodo said that she will not be filming because she doesn’t think she will be used to the schedule again and that she enjoys her hosting jobs instead.

    It looks like it really might be Charmaine filming with Dayo instead.

      That ain’t good news. I prefer “War of Gender 2” over “Your Hired 2”.

      Your Hired sucked

        I just remember liking the first half more than the second half. He has good chemistry with Charmaine though.

    Dodo puts her health as top priority. But it seems like she’s already living a very healthy lifestyle, plus she’s extremely fit. Filming one series won’t affect her health that much, will it?
