“Line Walker – The Movie”: Foon-hei Gor Back from the Dead?
The following article contains spoilers for Line Walker: The Movie, in cinemas on August 11, 2016.
Promotions are well underway for the movie follow-up of TVB’s 2014 hit drama Line Walker <使徒行者>, which starred Michael Miu (苗僑偉), Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼), Raymond Lam (林峯), and Benz Hui (許紹雄). The series is currently rerunning on TVB Jade every midnight.
Directed by Jazz Boon (文偉鴻), Line Walker: The Movie picks up where the show ended, and follows Charmaine Sheh’s Ting Jeh, who goes back in the shadows to search for another missing undercover. The movie also introduces Q Sir (Francis Ng 吳鎮宇), Ting Jeh’s handler; Lam (Nick Cheung 張家輝), an intelligent multinational drug dealer; and Young Master (Louis Koo 古天樂), a member of Lam’s drug ring.
Foon-hei Gor, popularly portrayed by Benz Hui, will also be returning despite having died in the original series. But is Foon-hei Gor actually dead or still alive?
At a television program to promote their upcoming film, Benz dropped the shocking spoiler that his role actually didn’t die in the original series. He said, “The movie will talk about why I didn’t die. Francis saved me. I didn’t die, but I will kill Ting (Charmaine). To save her I had to kill her. If you want to know why, watch the movie!”
The movie is extremely action packed, and Charmaine said she won’t be able to doing anything too extreme for a while. One of the motorcycle stunts she did for the film aggravated an old injury that involved a slipped disc. Her doctor recommended her to take more rest so she would not put further pressure on the disc.
Charmaine explained, “The slipped disc could also cause my hands to go numb. I’ve decided to take an extended period of rest after I finish promoting the movie. I wasn’t expecting to have so many action scenes. I usually don’t play such action-packed roles in dramas.”
Charmaine and Benz revealed that they will spend the next few weeks doing a promotional tour in Mainland China, and will visit over ten cities. Line Walker: The Movie will be released in Hong Kong and Mainland China on August 11, 2016.
