Edison Chen Makes Comeback in Sandra Ng’s “Golden Chickensss”
Edison Chen (陳冠希) will be making an important cameo appearance in Sandra Ng’s (吳君如) upcoming comedy film Golden Chickensss <金雞SSS>. Edison will make his first appearance in a local Hong Kong film since his guest appearance in the 2009 film, Coweb <戰·無雙>.
In Golden Chickensss, Edison will portray the owner of an oral sex shop, forcing prostitutes to give oral sex services. Edison will make a daring appearance topless in his underwear briefs. Edison’s role brings to mind that he was once part of Hong Kong’s biggest sex scandals.
Golden Chickensss is the third installment of the Sandra Ng-produced Golden Chicken film franchise, a sex comedy that chronicles the life of a has-been prostitute-turned-pimp Kam (Sandra Ng). The first two films were major box office hits, pushing Sandra to become one of the highest-paid actresses in Hong Kong. While the first two films were directed by Samson Chiu (趙良駿), Sandra invited Matt Chow (鄒凱光), who also worked on the first film, to direct the third.
“Because of the film’s contents, this movie will only be played in Hong Kong,” Sandra said at a press interview. “[Husband] Peter Chan (陳可辛) didn’t think the movie would cover the costs of production so he refused to produce the film with me,” Sandra added with a laugh.
Andy Lau Returns as Chief Executive
Without the mainland Chinese market to support its box office, Golden Chickensss will have to rely on receipts from elsewhere. As the film franchise is famous for including the cameo appearance of many A-list Hong Kong actors, Golden Chickensss will also invite similar top-tier actors to return, including Andy Lau (劉德華), Tony Leung Ka Fai (梁家輝), and Chapman To (杜汶澤).
“I really swiped all my friendship cards!” Sandra exclaimed.
Andy Lau will reprise his role as Hong Kong’s Chief Executive, a role that most Hong Kongers came to associate Andy with. In Golden Chickensss, which can be roughly seen as the prequel to the first two installments, Andy will portray as Sandra’s ex-lover, who is campaigning for his position and is under much stress. To relieve his pressure, Sandra gives him a foot massage.
“Andy made such a classic appearance in the first two films. He has to be even more impressive this time!” said Sandy. “Andy is really a great friend. He is always asking me for my thoughts about his performance, and he is such a great spirit. There are no words great enough to express my gratitude for his appearance.”
Andy then said, “I’ve been with Golden Chicken for the past ten years! I have a vital role in the series. Kam is also a role with much spirit, and her spirit is one of the reasons why the film is still going.”
Donnie Yen (甄子丹), Louis Koo (古天樂), Nick Cheung (張家輝), Dayo Wong (黃子華), Shawn Yue (余文樂), Eason Chan (陳奕迅), Ronald Cheng (鄭中基), Anthony Wong (黃秋生), and Wyman Wong (黃偉文), among others, will also be making cameo appearances in the film. Wyman Wong added that he had to learn Japanese-accented Cantonese role his role.
Golden Chickensss will open in Hong Kong on January 30, facing stiff competition from The Monkey King <西游記之大鬧天宮> and From Vegas to Macau <賭城風雲>, both starring Chow Yun Fat (周潤發).
