Before Kenneth Ma (馬國明) conquers the mainland Chinese television market, he will first become a movie star. Kenneth will be making his first major movie debut in the Jackie Chan (成龍) produced romantic comedy, Fate Is a Game <緣來是遊戲>.
It is reported that Kenneth will take on the lead role of a cool lawyer. In the movie, he will be surrounded by seven beauties, including rising Chinese actress, Zhang Zixuan (張子萱), who had starred in the romantic hit film, Love is Not Blind <失戀33天>. Kenneth and Zhang Zixuan will share several passionate kissing scenes.
Jackie will be inviting good friends, such as veteran actors Eric Tsang (曾志偉) and Irene Wan (溫碧霞) to star. Jackie is currently considering whether he will make a cameo appearance in the movie.
The filming company confirmed that Kenneth will star in the movie, but did not reveal his filming fees. However, it is rumored that he will receive up to $3 million RMB. Filming for the movie is scheduled to begin in October this year.
Prior to landing his big filming break in Jackie Chan’s new movie, Kenneth had starred in a cameo role in 2010 comedy, 72 Tenants of Prosperity <72家租客>, as a fireman. Kenneth’s entry into the film industry marks the growing trend of TVB artists branching into more diverse markets, such as Fala Chen (陳法拉) appearing in horror film Tales from the Dark 2 <奇幻夜> and Natalie Tong (唐詩詠) starring opposite Louis Koo (古天樂) in Inferno 3D <逃出生天3D>.
