Charmaine Sheh, Raymond Lam Return for “Line Walker” Movie

Last year, TVB drama Line Walker <使徒行者> enjoyed immense popularity. It was well-received in both Hong Kong, Mainland China, and Southeast Asia. Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼) and Raymond Lam (林峯) won multiple awards for their performances as well. Hoping to turn the title into a lucrative franchise, TVB announced plans to make a film version with original and new cast members.

Earlier, new TVB Chairman Charles Chan (陳國強) stated that the company will invest more in film productions. Its recent investments in From Vegas to Macau 2 <賭城風雲II> and the film version of Triumph in the Skies <衝上雲霄> returned ideal box office sales. Due to the popularity of Line Walker, TVB plans to produce a film version to maximize on profits as well.

The film version of Line Walker will begin filming this summer. Charmaine and Raymond will reprise their roles. It was also speculated that TVB plans to invite Film Kings Nick Cheung (張家輝) and Sean Lau (劉青雲) to star as well.

Since the theme revolves around undercover police, TVB hopes to obtain approval to release the film in Mainland China as well. To increase viewer appeal, the film will focus on three major international drug rings.

    Sounds good. Hope Michael Miu is in it also. If Nick and Sean are on board, Ray will not be first lead.

      I’m sure LF will demand equal or better roles than the rest of the male cast. 🙂

      I suggest the big movie stars decline this Line Walker film.

        @Genx: I’m pretty sure the answer for your question is “No. No way.”

        The above quote is like the ones in the gossips, only say, no proof, no way to prove.

    TITS movie was really bad so I don’t think Line walker will be as good as the series

      Loop,
      “Triumph in the Skies” is a glorious travelogue with romance thrown in. It’s a thin formula, while “Line Walker” has potential for more suspense and thrilling plot.

      I didn’t even bother to/think about watching TITS movie cause they removed Sam and Issacs’ chemistry.

    This sort of movie is done to death in HK and Infernal Affairs being the king.

    Why don’t TVB do this like in Japanese counterpart;

    1 series + 1 TV special + 1 movie + sequel for series + 1 TV Special + 1 movie

    All tie ins??

      Shhh, don’t give them any more ideas on how to milk their series to death

      Japanese counterpart? What do you mean by that? You mean this line:

      A manga – an anime – a live action – a movie – an anime sequel – a live action sequel – an anime remake – a live action remake – a movie – a TV special – a movie to end – a novel – a radio show – a prequel and so on.

      Yes, it is the manga adaption :). And some mangas are dragging in 10-15 years without an end (Im talking about Detective Conan, Bleach, One piece, HxH, Toriko and of course, the finally-ended Naruto).

      For series, normally only have a sequel or a movie, then ended. Well, their movies only last for 10-15 eps? A sequel isnt too much.

    Why would Sean want to come and act as a supporting cast to Raymond? I’m afraid that if Sean does agree, Ray is so going to be overshadowed by the combination of Michael, Sean and Nick.

    • Alluka replied:

      None of the above mentioned names are confirmed to join the movie. And in a movie, the definition of lead and supporting isnt as clear as TV. A main lead can appear only 20-30 mins.

    I doubt the two movie KINGS want to act with Ray and Sheh!They are still newbies compare to them. Moreover, a remake of TVB again. Boring!

    • Alluka replied:

      I dont rmb if Nick Cheung has acted with Ah Sheh but Nick collaborated with LF in The last breakthrough and they are close to each other.

      Why dont they want to act with newbie? They acted with tons of newbies without a complaint.

        Oh yeah. You reminded me. I loved the last breakthrough. Nick did really well in that one and Raymond did a great job singing the theme song as a newbie then.

    Leave it up to TVB to jump the gun yet again and “announce” names that are not even confirmed to participate (lost count of how many times they’ve done this already). Of course people aren’t going to pay attention to the word “invite” — they just see the names Nick Cheung and Sean Lau and already there’s “anticipation” for the movie. TVB sure knows how to “milk” the HK Media as well!

      The other movies you talked about were kinda crappy, but this Line Walker movie will prob be the only other chance to see Charray again. I wouldn’t mind it. They ate such a great natural couple with lots of chemistry.

    why in the world did TVB make a movie out of TITS? Line Walker was a big success, but turning into a movie with new characters sounds weird.

    I saw TITS the movie, and I was laughing my head off the entire time. TITS is a Comedy Romance film and I loved it. I haven’t watched Line Walker the series, and a lot of people said that it was really good, so I’m going to watch that next. So, I’ll give this movie a shot. Can’t wait to see it. 🙂

    With Nick and Sean in the movie, Raymond will definitely be shadowed. No more Biological son treatment like he use to in dramas.

      City Hunter is Japanese :). The Korean version was a quite bad adaption if you compare it to the manga/anime.

    Charmaine is touching 40 yrs. old and she no longer that fresh sweet beauty of days gone by. Raymond is 4 yrs. younger. Time is not on their side. They should have an escape plan now.

    Charmaine is no beauty and figure compare to Rosamund,Cherrie, Maggie, Wong Cho YIn and some of the stars in the early years. She dun have the “LOOK” in her to be a movie Queen. Maybe drama queen. Better go back to drama. Anyway I never watch any of her movie.
