Louis Koo Invites Raymond Lam to Star in “A Step Into the Past” Film

When Louis Koo (古天樂) and Raymond Lam (林峯) filmed the TVB series A Step Into the Past <尋秦記> in 2001, tabloids speculated that they were on bad terms. Louis was reportedly not fond of Raymond’s physique and tanned skin colour, which he believed was a carbon copy of himself. However, he will reportedly produce a film version of the drama next year and has invited Raymond to be a part of it, disproving their previous rumors of discord.

According to sources, Louis hopes the original cast will star in the new film. Earlier, he was spotted together with Raymond and several veteran actors at a famous restaurant in Causeway Bay. Louis acted like an elder brother and had his hand on Raymond’s shoulder. They seemed to be great friends, and even wore shoes of the same style.

At around 9:00p.m. that night, reporters first spotted Sean Lau’s (劉青雲) car parked outside the restaurant. One hour later, Sean, Francis Ng (吳鎮宇), and Cheung Tat Ming (張達明) stepped out of the building with red faces, and it is assumed that they had been drinking. When the group caught sight of reporters, Sean remained low-profile while Francis generously smiled and greeted the press. Battling cancer, Tat Ming possessed a skinny figure, but seemed to be in good spirits. Sean drove Francis home since they both live in Sai Kung, while Tat Ming waved down a taxi.

Louis and Raymond did not exit the restaurant until 11:00p.m. Their faces were also red, and it was evident that they had been drinking as well. Louis was dressed up in a Thom Browne jacket and Dsquared jeans. His Valentino sneakers are estimated to cost $5300 HKD. Raymond wore a similar style of shoes, although the colour was slightly different. When approached by reporters, Louis admitted the group had been discussing big plans.

  1. To Louis:  Please please please move forward with your plans to make the movie version of A Step Into the Past as soon as possible!   Don’t let TVB (via Shaw Brothers) make the movie version first because they already announced their ‘intention’ to do it as well as who they are planning to cast and IT IS GOING TO SUCK big time!  I’m pretty sure that fans of the original series will want to watch your version rather than Shaw Brothers’ silly version.

      1. @anon I didn’t know either until I stumbled across the news in one of the interview articles from a few weeks ago. I don’t recall seeing a formal announcement from TVB directly, but in that article, a reporter actually asked Louis Koo what he thought about the rumored plans that Shaw Brothers is going to make a movie version of ASITP as well and they are planning to cast Him Law in Louis’ role as Hong Siu Lung. Louis answered diplomatically of course but I will admit my mouth dropped open when I heard the reporter’s question (and the first thought that went through my head was: Him Law?? REALLY?? What the hell is TVB/Shaw Brothers thinking????). I am hoping (and praying) that this is only a rumor and Shaw Brothers doesn’t actually go through with it.

      2. @anon, plus him law possess not even 10% the handsomeness and charisma of louis koo,but him is still the most handsome tvb siu san of his generation.seriously tvb should stop milking their succesful tvb serie,im not against them to do that if they make good movie-adaptions but all their movie versions are garbage so far,thus i agree with ilwy they better not ruin another classic one.
