“The White Storm 2” Stars Andy Lau and Louis Koo

After the success of 2013 film, The White Storm <掃毒 >, a second installment has started filming. Boasting a star-studded cast, The White Storm starred a trio of Best Actors, Sean Lau (劉青雲), Louis Koo (古天樂), and Nick Cheung (張家輝), who brought in 250 million RMB in Mainland China and $31.21 million HKD in Hong Kong. Thrilled at the excellent performance, the producers had interests in filming a sequel with the original cast during the early brainstorming stages. However, because of the scheduling conflict, only Louis will be filming the sequel, and the sequel will be completely unrelated to the original storyline.

Last year, Andy Lau (劉德華) voiced his interest in taking part of the film and he has officially signed on and will also be one of the movie’s core producers. A short clip of Andy and Louis at the filming location was leaked online earlier, and Louis was seen dressed up as a drug dealer.

With the absence of both Sean and Nick, many fans were eager to see who they would invite as the third member of the movie. Although there were many speculations, it was reported that Michael Miu (苗僑偉) may step in.

The White Storm 2 marks Andy and Louis’ collaboration since 2007’s Protégé <門徒>.  It has been over 10 years since their last movie together; fans can expect nothing but thrilling action in the upcoming sequel.

  1. Tired of seeing the SAME actors in every HK movie. Don’t get me wrong. They are great actors but seeing the same familiar faces over and over again in every HK movie is boring.

      Tired of seeing Andy attempting action. Tired of them making sequels when the storyline if not related to original….

    2. @anon who do you want to see then? all the big guns are seniors that already dominated the hk movie industry for decades now. there are just no suitable successors for them. they all used to come from tvb but since the lack of talented actors with star power, tvb is no more a breed room for stars. its sad but the hk movie industry will have the same fate as the the hk music industry if no new talented stars emerge.

        If they bring in young Chinese actors to dominate the HK movie industry, I would rather continue see these veterans…

        I don’t have a solution. Just pointing out the repetitiveness of the same cycle of actors.

        On one hand, TVB is partially to blame for the lack of quality actors in their development cycle. On the other, the movie industry itself doesn’t do enough to develop fresh blood on their own. They rather stick to the same batch of actors in every movie.

        I agree with you that the HK movie industry will die soon if no drastic changes are made.

      3. @anon I agree, but unfortunately it looks like that’s the way things are going to be. Nowadays, everything is all about the Mainland China market – that’s where everyone’s attention has been focused the last decade or so and it will continue to be a focus in the years to come. Even Hollywood is looking to Mainland China more and more now (since China has surpassed the U.S. as the #1 movie market in the world in terms of box office receipts). In comparisons, the HK market is small potatoes and so if it dies out, no one is really going to care except us hardcore HK entertainment fans (and of course we are all “small fish” in the grand scheme of things so our opinion doesn’t count for much). Yes, TVB is partly to blame and the movie industry itself also should share in that (though admittedly there ARE some in the industry who play an active role in developing fresh blood, it’s just that their effort is dwarfed by the majority in the industry who don’t bother), but lack of government support also plays a role. It’s unfortunate but HK as a society is also in shambles with things getting worse daily – when the city itself is already deteriorating and slowly dying off, the least of their concerns would be to save the entertainment industry. Basically, for all intents and purposes, there’s no need to wait for drastic changes because the HK industry is pretty much ALREADY dead….
