Yan Cheng Xu Was Disclosed To Be Difficult, Basketball Of Fire, Unable To Burn

The rumor of Basketball Of Fire being terminated has been widely spred. Originally, it was planned to start filming in September. However, it is rumored that Yan Cheng Xu, as one of the investors, has been so dominant and difficult that he unhappily disbanded with the invester from Mainland China. So will he play the role or not? Yesterday, his agent, Zhang Mao Liang said, "It is in the last stage of evaluation."

Yan Cheng Xu, producer Feng Jia Rui, and director Cai Yue Xun have prepared the idol drama "Basketball Of Fire" for 3 years. The other male lead has been determined to be the popular newcomer, Wu Zun. Unexpectedly, it has faced a lot of obstacles. Firstly, it was the leaving of director Cai, and now even Yan Cheng Xu is rumored to quit. Other than what he said "Have only received 5 episods of scripts", the female lead is still unknown. In addition, information from the Mainland China's investor indicates that Yan Cheng Xu has withdrawn his investment and quitted filming the drama. The main reason was that he has involved too much and it led to unpleasant disagreement.

Yan Cheng Xu Has Attracted A Lot Of Negative Rumors Because of BOF
Honourably Get On The Cover Of Japanese Magazine

Last week, Yan Cheng Xu confirmed in person that he might not play BOF. Yesterday, Zhang Mao Liang indicates, "The presence of those rumors is because he is like a big tree which attracts the wind easily. He has never invested, then how would he withdraw the investment?" When confirmed with Wu Zun's agent, Chen Hui Ying, she said, "Never heard of it. Haven't contacted with the production team for a long time."

Yan Cheng Xu may not burn with the BOF, but his popularity has spred to Japan rapidly and intensely. Next week, he will promote The Hospital in Japan for its broadcast on NHK-BS channel starting October 4. He is also honourably on the cover of Japanese Magazine, Women Weekly.

=================================================

Interesting! If Jerry did invest and became the producer, isn't it natural for him to get involved? Then why he was called difficult again just because he got involved? If Jerry didn't invest, how can one actor impact the invester's decision to withdraw the investment? So, blaming Jerry again for problems? I am curious about "have only received 5 episodes of scripts." May be this is the main reason. Nevertheless, Jerry has never released news/confirmed to play the role.

well, according to the newsarticles, Jerry is the preferred choice amongst 3 for General Meng. i sometimes find it very funny, the more Jerry wants to be low profile, the more he seems to be dragged into the limelight. 1st the tourism drama, then BOF & now this tv serial.

from the below article, besides Jerry, the other 2 is a korean male actor & a mainland china actor. i really doubt they will choose the korean actor for the role. for the female lead, seems to be all mainland actress. Anthony Wong of HK is for the role of Emperor Qin.

if Jerry takes up the role, i really hope the lead actress who plays General Meng's love of 3 lifetimes will be Liu Yi Fei, her pix is in the below article.

the article on the pix of Jerry wearing pink is not abt the tv serial. its a rather nice article on the wearing of pink colour by Jerry. (fatty2: till now, there is still a lot of prejudices abt guys wearing pink). but seems that Jerry manage to pull it off with his Mia ensemble of pink shirt & white trousers. the writer of this article seems to prefer Jerry in pink compared to in black.

Title: Yan Cheng Xu Will Play The Young Version of "Zhang Yi Mao"
August 22, 2007
Dong Fang Daily (Mainland China)

According to DFDaily, the 30-episode tv drama, Qin Statue, is confirmed to start filming by the end of this year after 2 years of delay. Yesterday, TW's media firstly released the news of Yan Cheng Xu's challenging the role, Meng Tian Fang, which was played by Zhang Yi Mao years ago, and Yan Cheng Xu's talent fee will be up to RMB$160,000 per episode, which is as high as the top actors, such as Chan Dao Ming, in Mainland China. Yesterday, the reporter called the director, Gordon Chan Jia Shang, and he confirmed that Yan Cheng Xu is the most appropriate candidate for the male lead. Regarding the role played by Gong Li in the past, the possibility of being played by newcomer can't be ruled out.

Based on Chan Jia Shang's introduction, tv drama Qin Statue's storyline/scenes will be expanded to oversea. The production crew will travel to Tokyo, Japan for the filming, and the time travel love story between Meng Tian Fang and Dong Er which goes through 3 different lives will be fully elaborated in the tv drama. Chan Jia Shang indicates that the storyline/scenes in the tv drama is/are all new creation that it can't be found in the novel.

According to information, the script has come to the last editing stage and the finalized script will be completed by October. Chan Jia Shang indicates that the script has been worked on for 2 years. As this is his first tv drama, he has set high standards in the script. Regarding whether he has pressure to re-film a classic production, he mentioned when he initially discussed with Li Bi Hua, the plan was a movie, but as it is really difficult to surpass the movie, the project has turned into a tv drama. After all, tv drama has more capacity for telling a complete story with all the detials. If the tv drama gets good response, it is possible to have a movie version afterward.

Chan Jia Shang stated that the casting didn't start until last month. He has good impression on Yan Cheng Xu, feeling that he is reserved and low profiled that it is similar to Meng Tian Fang's character. Years ago, when Zhang Yi Mao played the role, he portrayed a rustic countryman. However, Chan Jia Shang said that time has changed, so do the characters. The audience will see a young version of Qin Statue. Besides, the reason he chose Yan Cheng Xu was also because of Yan's wonderful selling power in the overseas markets. As the money involved is so big, it must rely on the overseas markets to make profits. Even the investors agree that Yan Cheng Xu has pretty good popularity in Korea and Japan, so they have confidence in him. Chan Jia Shang reviewed that the negotiation has reached the contract signing stage for both parties, and only the schedule and talent fee are still under discussion. Regarding Gong Li's role, he has not decided who will be the female lead. The preliminary plan is to cast a newcomer. At this time, his priority is to decide who will play Qin Shi Huang. Although there was rumor that Huang Qiu Sheng will play the role, Chan indicates that Huang's talent fee is high, so it may not push through at the end.

in the United Daily newsarticle, it was said that a HK production team planned a big budget tv drama serial version of the movie The Myth ( starring Jackie Chan & Korean actress Kim Hee Sun). this story is based on reincarnation theme. the HK production team wants Jerry to play the lead role of General Meng, a general to the 1st Emperor of China (Qin Shi Huang) during the ancient Qin regime. Emperor Qin is the one that build the great wall of China. in the movie version, General Meng fell in love with the Korean princess which was sent to China as 1 of the many wifes of Emperor Qin. unfortunately, when Emperor Qin died, the Korean princess was 1 of the many wifes & concubines selected to die to accompany Emperor Qin in his afterlife. General Meng was the escort to the secret burial place of the Emperor. the story then moves on modern times when General Meng was reincarnated.

its said that Jerry is offered US$20,000.00 per episode for this serial which is scheduled to start filming in Oct. 2007. & that this will be Jerry's 1st ancient drama serial. its speculated that since Jerry, during the Mia event, has not confirmed abt participating in BOF & has said that he will be busy working overseas, it maybe bcos of this ancient serial. when Matt Cheng was contacted, he said they have received the script for the above tv serial & that Jerry has many scripts on hand but he has not decided on any yet. & also for the media not to speculate on Jerry's future projects.

seems that the Hk production team has almost finalised all the arrangements for the ancient settings, soldiers, horses, etc, etc. & that they are now waiting for Jerry's reply to the role of General Meng. for the role of Emperor Qin, they are contemplating HK veteran actors such as Anthony Wong or Eric Tsang.

Shouting Jerry's english name, full of anticipation for their idol to look at the. And Jerry's wave, smile can drive the fans crazy.
Organisers can be relieved, the event was full house and the atmosphere was high.
