The worshipping ceremony for new film, Raging Fire (怒火) starring Donnie Yen (甄子丹) and Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒) and directed by Benny Chan (陳木勝) was conducted at the location shooting in Quarry Bay a few days ago. The boss, Albert Yeung (楊受成) visited them and distributed ice-cream to everybody so as to reduce the dehydration.
Donnie and Nicholas reckoned they needed 40,000 square feet to build the background setting of Peking Road and Canton Road in Tsim Sha Tsui and praised it was an extraordinary opportunity. Other than that, some scenes would be filmed in Peking Road and it was considered a very rare production for the Hong Kong films in recent years.
When mentioned about the gun and raining scenes, Nicholas said: “It has been a long time since Hong Kong film has very powerful action scenes and we are close to firing a million bullets for the past few days. I watch Donnie’s films since little and feel elated to work together.” Checking about the stunt performer’s injury after shooting a car accident scene, Donnie and Nicholas replied they visited him at the hospital and he looked fine. Both hoped he would have a speedy recovery.”
