    Default OMG Hark Tsui to adapt ROCH Movie! Yes!

    Yes! My favorite JY story is ROCH, followed closely by Ode to Gallantry.

    Why I don't like the other two works in Condor Trilogy:

    1. HSDS - Ew, at its root, it's a harem wuxia work where the hero remains undecided at the end who he picks out of his harem. When ppl run out of ideas, they write a story about a gazillion girls falling in love with one man. The product of which is very one-dimensional.

    2. LOCH - Hmm, story is about a spoil brat (YK) vs humble brat (GJ). I really hate this di-polar type of story characters. That's why JY went on to write ROCH where YG is both humbled by his upbringing AND cocky. Good character vs bad is immature writing. YG is the fusion of both traits, and hence the story sequel to LOCH shows more ingenuity.

    Anyways, source:

    Another article about this on jaynestars:

    http://www.jaynestars.com/news/tsui-...n-as-yang-guo/
    Please let the rumors of Zhao Liying as Xiaolongn just be rumors and nothing more :////
    Liu Tao or Shu Qi would be cool XLNs. Any other ideas on who could / should be XLN?


    OT: There are gonna be a lot of JY productions in the next 3 or 4 years: XAJH, XSFH, HSDS, Book and Sword, LOCH & ROCH 3d film trilogies, 4K 3D LOCH animation film by Shaw Bros... I'm overly happy xD

    [Edit: forgot Fei Hu Wai Zhuan was also being made by Huace while ZJZ is doing his XSFH. That makes 5 TV shows and 7 movies (2 trilogies and 1 animation film)

    I haven't heard anything since 3D LOCH by Gordon Chan was announced a while ago. Is the project still ongoing?

    Anyways, my personal preferences:


    FOR role of XLN:



    1. Chun-er from Princess Agents






    2. Ni Ni from Wukong movie




    3. Wei Wei from Love O2O TV drama, but she needs to gain some weight (she's too skinny)




    4. Liu Tao






    5. Fan Bing Bing

    6. Victoria Song from Ice Fantasy



    --------

    AGAINST casting of XLN (I shall boycott the movie by refusing to watch should any of these ppl adopt this role):




    1. Crystal Lliu




    2. AngelaBaby



    As for YG, I wouldn't mind seeing Lin Gengxin or Hu Ge or Yang Yang in this role, but prefer the first actor.

    They're gonna do a casting call end of October.

    Following your example, here are the cast members that i would hate:

    Zhao Liying as XLN
    Liu Yifei as XLN
    Fan Bingbing as XLN (she isn't fit for this kind of role. the only reason anyone would cast her is because of her popularity)
    Yang Mi (Again; not a XLN. I'd be perfectly fine with her in other roles though)
    Li Yifeng as YG (he isn't a very good actor, just a teen idol; hence his popularity)
    Yang Yang as YG (same as above)
    Kris Wu (not a YG type of actor)


    Cast that I would definetely be fine with:

    YG:
    Wallace Huo
    Chang Chen (although he might be a bit too old)
    Wallace Chung

    XLN:
    Liu Tao
    Chen Hao
    Shu Qi
    Liu Shishi
    Zhou Xun

    OMG, you've read my mind, except for Fan BingBing, I was afraid of putting Yang Mi and/or ZLY against the role of XLN for fear of retribution by her fans... Anyways, even if rumors were false, I can't imagine anyone in the role of YG other than Lin Gengxin. I recently watched J2TW2 Demons Strike Back and Sword Master back to back just to see LG in action.

    Lin Gengxin would indeed be a safe choice.

    I was thinking of Wallace Chung earlier, after seeing him as the psycho guy in 'Three', and I was like: now THAT is a good YG type of actor xD
    Maybe watch a trailer of 'Three' on youtube, you will see what I mean. His psycho smile is like YG's sly smile xD

    Of course YG should sport a killer smile. But I guess I'm not as picky about YG's casting since I'm a guy. Anyways, since it will be a movie trilogy, I hope they sign up the same cast for all 3 movies not something like diff casting of Monkey King 1+2.

    As I am a straight guy too, i don't really care about the actor's looks that much either. what i do care about though, is whether or not tsui hark will cast a good actor and not some Yang Yang or Kris Wu kind of person. Hence my note about Wallace Chung.

    Oh god, haven't even thought about that. Tsui Hark often does this. When he worked with Chow on JTW 2, he changed the cast completely :/
