"Fire Basketball" Dream Team - Team Set! Basketball Battle with Jerry Yan, Show Luo, and Wu Zun, 10/18/2007

Idol Drama "Fire Basketball" is finally on deck to film as Jerry Yan, Show Luo, and Wu Zun set out for a battle on the basketball court. Filming for this new drama is starting at the end of November, with a cost of about $60 Million.


Jerry Yan's Discounted Appearance

Having not even started the filming process, "Fire Basketball" with Jerry, Show, and Zun has already started a commotion in Asia. Before Jerry had accepted the offer, at one time he had declined the offer due to the character role. It's because he feels that he cannot play a humorous role. Jerry is currently residing in Japan and the producer Fen Jia Rui sincerely flew to Japan a few times and offered to adjust his character to please Jerry in order to have him agree to do the drama.


Show Luo Anticipates"Acting Cool"

Jerry has already met with director, Lin He Long, and had given Jerry many suggestions, including improvements on his acting. In the drama, Jerry is a basketball master and Show Luo is his agile, spring-legged teammate, Show Luo says, "[This drama] allows me to act cool/handsome, so I'm looking forward to it." Show and Zun had met each other before on "100% Entertainment" (Yu Le Bai Fen Bai), at that time Zun had presented him with gym gloves. They not only exchanged phone numbers, but they would also play basketball together.


Wu Zun Doesn't Care about Ranking

These three handsome guys have a love for basketball and will soon set out a battle on the basketball court. How the 3 guy's roles are going to be set and how their rankings will is a major discussion topic. The most recently debuted of the 3 guys, Zun, says, "This isn't the main point. Show and Jerry are both my basketball friends. So it will be fascinating to work with them.


Leading Female Role Undecided and Still Vacant

It's understood that they had considered many female actors to fill the leading female role, from Barbie Xu, Rainie Yang, Angela Zhang to Gui Lun Mei, but as of now, the female leading role is still vacant. Comic-Ritz Company expressed, not only is "Basketball" having a hard time finding the leading female role actress, but the original female lead for a new drama "Fried Rice," Ren Xuan Rong (Kristen Ren, Selina's little sister) is also being replaced also due to the role of the character, so they also face the problem of finding a new female lead.
