The film THE LAST TYCOON (DAI SEUNG HOI) will be released in December for Christmas. The film company earlier released its first female character poster as lead actress Yolanda Yuan Quan officially appeared. She and Xin Baiqing being attacked in the rain and she and Chow Yun Fat's deeply touching romantic scenes were also unveiled. Yuan Quan applauded and cheered this opportunity to work with Fat Gor. Director Wong Jing said that since Maggie Cheung Man Yuk and Leon Lai Ming's COMRADES ALMOST A LOVE STORY (TIM MUK MUK) he has never been touched to the point of feeling "goose bumps" until the emotional scene between Yuan Quan and Fat Gor.
Yuan Quan played Ye Zhiqiu who was attacked in the rain, knocked to the ground and got all wet. The entire scene had to be shot in the rain. Playing Ye Zhiqiu's husband, Xin Baiqing's heart ached because she had to fall again and again into the ice cold water. Xin Baiqing said that Yuan Quan wore a Chinese dress but still reminded him who was in a coat to quickly dry himself to avoid catching a cold. This actress was well worth respecting.
In THE LAST TYCOON, Yuan Quan and Chow Yun Fat had many emotional scenes that not only received producer Andrew Lau Wai Keung's rave but her tears even conquered Fat Gor. He even personally congratulated the director on "getting a bargain". Although she received Fat Gor's praise, Yuan Quan also did not relax. She felt that this character's challenge was even greater and lamented that "it's too hard to be Big Brother's woman". Actually when Yuan Quan first came in contact with THE LAST TYCOON, she thought it was a mob film like YOUNG AND DANGEROUS (GOO WAT JAI) and A BETTER TOMORROW (YING HUNG BOON SIK). Later she read the script and realized that the woman in this film is truly too important.
Chow Yun Fat has not held a gun on the big screen in a long time, which viewers looked forward to. His romantic scene was also rare in recent years. Lau Wai Keung revealed that earlier he conducted a survey to see which genre did people look forward to Fat Gor playing. The two aforementioned topics were higher among the results. Finally Wong Jing suggested for Chow Yun Fat to play both in one film.
