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.
