Award-winning Singaporean director Anthony Chen on Friday unveiled a new film company and a new movie project that will see him collaborate with other directors from Asia.
When veteran film, television and theatre actor Lim Kay Tong was approached to take on the role of former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew, he rejected it outright.
What Singapore commercial film director Jack Neo initially designed as a move to break into the Chinese, Hong Kong and Taiwanese markets turned out to be one of his greatest talent discoveries: casting Chinese actress Eva Cheng.
In an unexpected move during an otherwise uneventful press conference for Jack Neo’s closer to his two-part “Lion Men” film franchise, the Singapore director pulled up to the surface some dirty laundry. He made “Lion Men” and “Ah Boys To Men” star Wang Wei Liang and veteran getai entertainer Wang Lei make up on stage.
