The god class actor Stephen Chow Sing Chi even has a temper that exceeds others! Rumors of partnerships that ended in unpleasantness are frequent. Recently another one is added -- his new film JOURNEY TO THE WEST (SAI YAU GONG MOR PIN) director Derek Kwok Chi Kin. Reportedly they due to camera placement issue had some friction, finally Sing Yeh wrapped up the film himself and carried the recent promotion as well.
After Ng Man Tat, Wong Jing, Wong Yat Fei, and Sammo Hung Kam Bo, Chow Sing Chi recently has been rumored to be at odds with another partner! Earlier he and Kwok Chi Kin directed JOURENY TO THE WEST, Sing Yeh was the writer and the director. However with his unique ideas, during the shoot he and Kwok Chi Sin had a difference of opinion. Reportedly they constantly due to camera placement issues created friction and were unable to come to an understanding. Thus Kwok Chi Kin left the front line during the production while Sing Yeh kept working hard.
On recent promotional posters, the film was only introduced as Stephen Chow film without any show of Kwok Chi Kin. Even for the Mainland promotional tour, production meeting and the Hong Kong press conference tomorrow, Kwok Chi Kin would not be expected. Instead Shu Qi and Wen Zhang were listed. To find Kwok Chi Kin's name, one would have to look on the film's official microblog credits. However because he was not expected at the promotion, Kwok Chi Kin was free and clear to direct Nicholas Tse Ting Fung's new film wholeheartedly.
Kwok Chi Kin earlier was hospitalized due to a kidney stone. Recently he has already recovered and continued to work on his new film. When asked about the difference of opinion with Sing Yeh, he said with hesitation, "Nothing like that, it's just a rumor." As for other collaboration plan, Kwok Chi Kin did not directly respond.
During the shoot JOURNEY kept its characters confidential. With the recent promotional tour the veil of mystery has been lifted. Mainland actor Huang Bo played the Monkey King, Shu Qi played Miss Duen. Taiwan star Show Luo (Law Chi Cheung) played a lonely gentleman."
