Flora Chan, Sheren Tang, and Ada Choi Invited to Star in HKTV “Armed Reaction” Remake
Flora Chan (陳慧珊) and husband Mike Chung (鐘家鴻) recently met up with HKTV executives to talk about a possible collaboration. Flora Chan is reportedly in talks about starring in an upcoming HKTV drama remake of TVB’s Armed Reaction<陀槍師姐> series, a popular action crime series that spawned four successful installments. The original series, which starred Esther Kwan (關詠荷), Joyce Tang (滕麗名), Bobby Au Yeung(歐陽震華) and Marco Ngai (魏駿傑), premiered in 1998 and released its fourth and last installment in 2004.
According to various sources, HKTV’s upcoming remake of Armed Reaction will also star Sheren Tang (鄧萃雯), who is already cast and has the drama’s script in hand. HKTV also offered a leading role to Ada Choi (蔡少芬), who is reportedly still considering. Ada Choi was an original Armed Reaction cast member, having replaced Esther Kwan as the series’ female lead for Armed Reaction 3 and Armed Reaction 4.
It has been said that Flora is asking for at least $40,000 HKD per episode, and that the filming duration should not exceed eight hours per day, as she still has to care for her daughter. The reports claimed that HKTV’s initial offer to Flora was $30,000 HKD per episode.
Flora has just completed the filming for the TVB grand production M Club <女人俱樂部>, a 30-episode comedy drama that also stars Carman Lee (李若彤), Rachel Lee (李麗珍), Fennie Yuen (袁潔瑩), Gloria Yip (葉蘊儀), Angie Cheong (張慧儀), Elvina Kong (江欣燕), and Lawrence Ng (吳啟華).
