Pegasus lines up Kok comedy, 3D horror
Raymond Wong’s Pegasus Motion Pictures is gearing up to shoot two projects in the second quarter of 2012 – Vincent Kok’s Guys Are Like Clothes (working title) and a 3D horror film from Po Chih Leong.
Scheduled to start shooting at the end of April, Guys Are Like Clothes is a romantic comedy about women turning the tables on men. The ensemble cast will include Ronald Cheng, Raymond Lam, Teresa Mo, Karena Ng and Lynn Xiong.
Po’s as-yet-untitled 3D horror will be co-directed by Raymong Wong and star Raymond Lam, Karena Ng and Yan Ni. Production is scheduled to start in June. Up-and-coming actress Ng, who is managed by Pegasus, is nominated for her role in the Wong-produced Magic To Win at next month’s Hong Kong Film Awards.
Meanwhile, Pegasus will host a press conference at Filmart today for Ronny Yu’s $26m Saving General Yang, a co-production with Henan Film Group and Huayi Brothers, which is currently in post-production.
Based on the Yang clan folk tales, the film was scripted by Wong’s son, Edmond Wong (Ip Man). It stars Adam Cheng as the father of the clan and seven hot pan-Chinese actors, including Ekin Cheng, Yu Bo and Vic Chou, as the sons.
