Media Asia and Donnie Yen Chi Tan will create the film company Super Hero. Yesterday a contract signing ceremony took place. Media Asia boss Peter Lam Kin Ngok attended with Yen Chi Tan; they turned into super heroes and posed with swords. Lam Kin Ngok said that he was the best extra. Soi Cheang Pou-Soi and Derek Kwok Chi Kin who will direct for Super Hero also attended.
Yen Chi Tan said that although he will form a company with Media Asia to make movies, he will still make movies outside. Super Hero will have no annual film quota and will make a movie when it is right. Yen Chi Tan admitted that he had offers from Hollywood, but his movies now may not be Hollywood films. For years his preference and the ability to provide the audience entertainment and positive energy came first in his movie making. He was just as willing to take risks now as When he was at his poorest and only had HK$100 on him. He joked that it would be the best to shoot behind his home, so everyday he could go home and eat.
He will work on an action comedy with Mainland director Feng Xiaogang. Yen Chi Tan said, "Feng Xiaogang is a director I admire, every one of his movie is a classic. He excels in comedy, I excel in action films. The crossover will be very entertaining."
