Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒) and the film director, Benny Chan (陳木勝) announced they would be working together with Donnie Yen (甄子丹) in new film (怒火) at Emperor Motion Pictures press conference (2019英皇電影項目巡禮) on 19th March 2019.
Nicholas explained he agreed to shoot the movie as the plot was touching and he had worked with Benny several times. The last film that he participated was Shaolin Temple (少林寺). Nicholas said: “I am looking forward to film the movie and it is a new challenge to me. It has been a long time since local films have many realistic action scenes. (Worry about having any injury?) It is normal and will be designed by the film producer, Donnie. It is our second collaboration since filming the drama, Dragon Tiger Gate (龍虎門) 14 years ago. I really look forward to shoot action scenes with him. (Tell Donnie to use his full strength?) I have started to train and see if I can run faster.”
When asked about his relationship with Faye Wong (王菲) due to the rumours with Yang Mi (楊冪), Nicholas wore the sunglasses immediately and rejected to answer about his personal affair, before walking away.
