Although Fala Chen (陳法拉) is making grounds in Hollywood, she remains attached to Hong Kong entertainment industry and is reportedly returning back to Hong Kong to star in Nick Cheung’s (張家輝) new movie.
After ending her contract with TVB in 2013, Fala went to the Juilliard School to pursue a Master of Fine Arts. After graduation, Fala took her first step in Hollywood by signing with an American talent agency and made her appearance in The Undoing. Last year, Fala became the first Hong Kong actress to appear in a Marvel movie, Shang-Chi and the Nine Rings alongside Tony Leung.
It has been eight years since Fala worked in Hong Kong, but the actress has reportedly set her eyes on a new project Suk Mung <贖夢> led by Nick. Not only will Nick act in the movie, the actor will also be taking on the director’s role.
Details of the New Film
The upcoming movie received funding through the Hong Kong Film Development Council and was approved with a record-breaking budget of $9 million Hong Kong dollars. The movie was originally scheduled to be filmed in May of this year but it was pushed back due to the pandemic and to accommodate Nick’s schedule.
Although little details of the movie has been released, it is reported that Nick personally offered the role to Fala after being impressed by her growth in Hollywood. In return, Fala was interested in working with Nick and agreed to the project without negotiating on the appearance fee.

When the reporters reached out to Rebecca on the new project, Rebecca was vague and responded, “I am planning to film some movies, but it is not convenient to reveal too many details. I will share details with you at a later date.
