Sparks Fly for Louis Koo and Chilam Cheung In “S Storm”
After weeks of no sleep and long work hours, Chilam Cheung (張智霖) and Louis Koo (古天樂) are finally putting their guns down for the Hong Kong crime film S Storm <S風暴>. The movie directed by David Lam (林德祿) recently wrapped up shooting, and the two leads immediately shared the good news on social media, celebrating a job well done.
It has been nearly ten years since Chilam and Louis last closely worked together in a film. The former TVB-managed artistes collaborated for the first time in the 1996 TVB drama Cold Blood Warm Heart <天地男兒> and were the two lead actors in the 1998 action thriller movie, The Suspect <極度重犯>. Chilam and Louis both starred in this year’s Lunar New Year film Triumph In the Skies <衝上雲霄>, but did not have many scenes together.
In the thrilling S Storm, Chilam, who plays a CID detective and Louis, an ICAC officer, team up to catch a wanted criminal. Despite it being over ten years since their last collaboration, chemistry sparks still flew between the duo.
Chilam shared that he has had a lot of fun doing the movie with Louis. However, he admitted that he would not miss the long working hours at night. “It’s been a fun ride, and I had a great time with the crew. However, [the long film hours] tired me out.”
On how it felt like to work with Louis again, Chilam said, “Great. We’ve both matured.”
