Psychological crime thriller Cold Detective <神探大戰> will be taking new leaps for the Hong Kong detective genre. Starring Sean Lau (劉青雲), Charlene Choi (蔡卓妍), Raymond Lam (林峯), Jeana Ho (何佩瑜), and a special guest appearance by Carman Lee (李若彤), Cold Detective is directed by Wai Ka-fai (韋家輝) and centers on two morally gray detectives who are given the task to end unsolved crimes once and for all. The characters meander between the fine lines of good and evil.
“This is a very interesting character,” introduced Sean. “To play a character like this, I have to fully accommodate. The police in this film are a bit problematic. It delves deep into their minds, and it explores the psychological state and journey of one person. This is yet another collaboration with Wai Ka-fai, and it’s definitely going to be a challenging one. He went in depth on my character’s psychological changes, and it’s going to be tough!”
Raymond Lam is excited to start on the film. Sharing that he plays a cop who is “not normal”, Cold Detective may be Raymond’s darkest project yet. “This is my third time this year playing a character who is not normal. This one is the worst one—the director wanted me to play someone who is purely evil, who is dark to the core. It’s definitely going to be a bold new challenge. This past year I’ve played very unstable characters, so I am mentally prepared for this one. When I was listening to the story of my character from the director, all I could do was stare at him with shock. Wow!”
