Shaw Brothers’ upcoming blockbuster drama ICAC Attack <廉政狙擊> will be going head-to-head with TVB’s ICAC Investigators 2022 <廉政行動2022>. The two similarly-themed dramas will also pit two Best Actress winners against each other, as Nancy Wu (胡定欣) helms the Shaw Brothers production while Sisley Choi (蔡思貝) pairs up with Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪) in the TVB series.
Breakthrough Role for Nancy?
ICAC Attack brings together previous and present siu sangs and fadans including Nancy Wu, Bosco Wong (黃宗澤), Vincent Wong (王浩信), Ron Ng (吳卓羲) and Mandy Wong (黃智雯). The drama will start filming at the end of June.
As Nancy’s first production since signing with Shaw Brothers, she has literally lost sleep after reading the script due to the huge challenge. Her gray character would be driven by a certain vindictiveness. “The role is very complicated. After going through the script, both Mandy and I could really picture the plot.” Playing Bosco’s elder sister (she is a year younger than him in real life), Nancy would also have close-knit and interesting friendships with Ron, Mandy, and Vincent.
Praising the script, Bosco is eagerly looking forward to filming as he has “not seen such a quality script” in a long time. Bosco commented, “This time, Nancy’s character will be really interesting and cool! You don’t know how much I’d like to play the role–it will be very fun.”
Known for playing law enforcement officers umpteenth times, Ron will not be part of the police force in this series. He will instead straddle the boundaries of good and evil, and possess a romantic subplot with Mandy Wong.
Vincent Actively Buffing Up
To prepare for his role as a police officer with action and topless scenes, Vincent has been taking time out to train while working on his film Detrimental <見怪>. Calling his role in Detrimental more challenging than a visually-impaired lawyer in Legal Mavericks 2020 <踩過界2>, Vincent had many action scenes throughout the movie which has fantasy elements to the plot.
