Chilam Cheung (張智霖) and Chrissie Chau (周秀娜) greeted the press on March 26 to generate interest for their upcoming film You Are The One <千億惡魔愛上我>. Chilam shared that he will have kissing scenes with Chrissie, and calls himself lucky to be able to collaborate with the sexy goddess.
You Are The One is Chrissie’s first project from a twelve-film deal she signed with China 3D Digital Entertainment, which also manages Chilam’s career. The movie will be directed by Patrick Kong (葉念琛), and produced by China 3D’s boss Stephen Shiu Jr. (蕭定一). The story is based on Hollywood classic Pretty Woman, in which a wealthy businessman meets a prostitute and hires her to accompany him to various social engagements. In the upcoming Hong Kong version, Chilam will play a multi-billionaire who becomes lost on the streets one day and runs into Chrissie, a trendy and materialistic “Mong Kok Girl”. Chilam hires her to incite his ex-girlfriend’s jealousy, though after their travels, falls in love with her.
Director Kong was given $50 million HKD for the film, and already has plans to hold location shoots in Japan and Dubai. Chilam shared that the cast was also given the chance to select filming locations. Although Chrissie wants to travel around the world, both she and Chilam agree that Europe’s romantic scenery would be the best fit for the film’s story line.
As it will be a romantic movie, Chilam revealed that he and Chrissie will share kissing scenes. “We don’t know how intense it will be, but I believe the focus is on romance, not on lust.” He expressed his appreciation for the chance to go on a romantic date with the goddess, calling it “men’s dream job”. When asked if his wife Anita Yuen (袁詠儀) had requested to come along to keep an eye on the two, Chilam joked that he had told her to keep away. “I warned her not to get in my way! If she insists on coming, I will withdraw from filming!”
