The press conference for The White Storm 2 – Drug Lords (掃毒2天地對決) film starring Andy Lau (劉德華), Louis Koo (古天樂), Michael Miu (苗僑偉), Karena Lam (林嘉欣) and directed by Herman Yau (邱禮濤) was held in Beijing on 8th July 2019. When asked about agreeing to film the movie and directed as the film producer after falling down from horse riding, Andy replied he “lacked of money” and explained he wanted to shoot a film with less pressure after the recovery. He believed the quality should be good since Louis and Michael participated in the movie. Checking about the reason for being the film producer, Andy responded he needed to “save money” due to many action scenes such as explosions and car accidents. He also hoped to get the bonus: “I get more bonus if the box office is good.”
The White Storm 2 – Drug Lords film debuted on 5th July in China and the box office received good results for the past 3 days. Looks like it is going to be successful and progressing well.
