TVB Controller of Drama Production Tommy Leung held a farewell dinner in TVB City. Close to 200 artistes and a group of TVB executives were in attendance. Tommy's family also appeared. When TVB Chairman Norman Leung accepted an interview, he revealed that Tommy would be staying in TVB: "Tommy is retiring today, but also welcoming him to continue as a senior consultant in TVB's production department. He wanted to venture out a few years ago; at that time, I did my best to get to him to stay. Afterward, he will be filming Mainland series and movies. He will film the movie version of "Triumph in the Skies" in April...it is a grand production that is over a hundred million. He has a good relationship with TVB. He said that, when he films stuff, would also first consider TVB artistes".
Regarding the filming details for the movie version of "Triumph", Tommy revealed, "The male leads have been confirmed to be Francis Ng, Julian Cheung, and Louis Koo. Still writing the script. As for the female lead, want to find a Mainland actress...hope for it to be more international". Regarding it being rumoured that there would be two movie versions of "Triumph" happening at the same time, Tommy said, "We have copyright; thus, we have priority. This time, Siu Ding Yat should not have a part in it".
Personal Note: All the best to Tommy!
Louis should look very cool as a pilot!
