    Default if mediacorp is to film tian long ba bu

    first, i think there is such a thread but sorry i am not able to find it, so i decide to start another one.

    second, it will actually be great if mediacorp film it since the storyline for the novel 3rd edition has changed.

    Xiao Feng
    Duan Yu
    Xu Zhu
    Mu Wanqing
    Ah Zhu
    Ah Zi
    Wang Yuyan
    Zhong Ling
    Xixia Princess
    Xiao Lei
    Duan Yanqing
    Duan Zhengchun
    Tianshan Tonglao
    Li Qiushui
    Murong Fu

    I don't know if the characters are male or female but i think Guo Liang,Fann Wong,Christopher Lee and Apple Hong all looks good in the ancient clothes.

    Hmm... I never quite like the adaptation of Return of the Condor heroes by Mediacorpse, I doubt they can do a good job with Tian Long Ba Bu as well. There are not enough actresses and actors who look good in period drama costumes and can act well in MC. Comparisons will no doubt be drawn to all the other Tian Long ba bu serials done by HK and China, very hard to live up to them.

    The only free-to-air television station in Singapore. Like TVB and ATV, only difference is Mediacorp being utter crap.

    first, i think tcs has a number of good actors/actresses. second, i think tcs must be more bold. roch is not so great as the storyline is already there. since the storyline of tlbb has changed, why not do it instead of copying from others again?

    Fiona Xie??! As Mu Wanqing?!

    Sorry to give this kinda remark even though i dont (or can't) have any better suggestion, but that's my initial reaction when i saw it. I think Joanne Peh as Ah Zi is not a bad choice.

    if mediacorp is to film tian long ba bu ... they wld be retarded

    my most earnest advice is they shld not even think of it...

    It's not only the castin prob... althou that is the biggest prob cos none of Mediacock resident has what it takes to play those Dai-hup roles. There is also the prob of fighting sequences, co-ordinating the large battle scenes prevalent in JY stories...

    The fighting scenes in ROCH were mostly badly done... in Xiao Au Jiang Hu were slightly better but i rely dun see how the production crew at Mediacorp can create those exciting scenes like Qiao Feng battling at Shaolin etc...

    According to what I heard, MCS love to shoot family drama because of lower budget. So we don't have to worry.

    Mu Wanqing has to be a "fierce" but loving lady. I thought Fiona Xie could fit the bill.

    i think roch, minus a few wrong hairdos, is not too bad as compared to potraits of home.
