From what’s been floating around in the news ever since E.U. ended, Turning Point will be about Laughing Gor (Michael Tse) before he made it to the big brother position in the biggest mafia/triad/gang in Hong Kong. Strictly speaking, Laughing was a trainee in the police academy, who got chosen to become an undercover because one, his situation was suitable, and two, he is one heck of a capable guy with a lot of wit, gut, and tact. The time in which Turning Point takes place is approximately nine years before the start of E.U.

Turning Point is a very attractive movie many fans are waiting for, not just because it’s about the life of one of the most popular characters TVB has ever made, but also because it hails an astounding cast–from extremely well established actors to recent hot favorites to rising new stars! Not only that, a glimpse of the official trailer will tell you Turning Point is the movie to look out for. It will be filled with stunning action scenes and intense heart-pacing confrontations. It will display a seemingly tragic romance and last but not least, the meaningful perspective to an undercover’s internal struggle to find his rightful place in the world. Who will win? The police, the triad, or the one man who has nowhere to stand except the midline? What will become of him, his purpose, his life, his everything? In the end, was what he did worth it?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Michael Tse depended on his role Laughing Gor in TVB series "E.U" to gain a burst in popularity from the whole city, he was immediately appreciated by his company and will be having his own film (LAUGHING GOR之蚂節), which is produced by the Shaw Brothers. Michael will be stepping into the Film industry once again and also bumping into "Chai Gau" from the recent popular series "Rosy Business", Wayne Lai. "Chai Gau" played by Wayne Lai had been a huge hit recently, therefore he's also been casted in the new film to "chase" after Laughing Gor. Great actors Anthony Wong and Francis Ng will also be part of the cast. Yesterday the cast had on their exaggerated costumes and did many gimmicks.

Laughing Gor's film outdoor garden premiere ceremony was held yesterday at TVB City in Tseung Kwan O. The director Herman Yau and the cast: Michael Tse, Anthony Wong, Francis Ng, Felix Wong, Wayne Lai, Tracy Ip, Kenny Wong and Johnson Lee, Shaw Brothers' Film director Wong Ka Hei, TVB Executive Virigina Lok, Film Producer Leung Ka Sue all attended. The female lead to play Mrs. Laughing has not been decided yet, once decided it will be announced.

The two popular figures Laughing Gor (Michael Tse) and Chai Gau (Wayne Lai) were arranged to be in the middle of the opening ceremony, but the two film kings Anthony and Francis were also very impressive where they all came in exaggerated costumes, they didn't start filming yet, but already started 'fighting'. Laughing Gor Michael Tse mentioned that the story will speak of a 9 year bitter story. He is very happy to be able to work with Anthony Wong, Francis Ng, guest star Eric Tsang as the big triad boss, Felix Wong and a classy production crew. As for himself, in order to accommodate with the character, his appearance will be more down-to-earth. Speaking of the salary that he will be earning? Michael said: "Need to ask Ms. Lok, she said that recently its following the TV series, but probably won't be any less than filming series."

Wayne said that its critical this time because last week he learned that there will be 7 or 8 groups making a guest performance, but working with such famous film kings, he is very happy that he is able to be part of it. He said: "I will be playing an upright good character, my personality is a rude Police Sergeant. My job is to be on top of gangs like Laughing Gor, Anthony Wong and Francis Ng. When I see one, I will be one."

Anthony Wong expressed that he'll be playing the leader of a Triad and will be against Francis Ng, he is also Laughing Gor's big boss. He will have 6 or 7 girlfriends, he is the gang version of Wai Siu Bo. In the film, Tracy Ip who plays a lawyer will be one of his girlfriends. Although Tracy is more than willing to play "hand-in-hand' scenes, but Anthony said that the script has no arrangements for those scenes. He has a guest performance and will appear in ripped up clothes, also will have different make-ups to accommodate the role. Francis feels that the film has different elements, so he doesn't mind giving up screen time for Laughing Gor, he laughed: "I suggested that the salary should give me in full, but don't need to give me the screen time in full. I need to go home and take care of my kids, but I still need to take out a month of my time for filming."

Wayne Lai's role Chai Gao in TVB series "Rosy Business" has gained him a lot of popularity. He has since been given a important role in Michael Tse's new Laughing Gor movie "Laughing Gor 之變節". He said "I only received notification last week." Wayne stated that he has filmed a movie with Anthony Wong Chau Sang before. But it was 7 or 8 years ago. Pierre Ngo who plays the evil spoilt brat in "Rosy Business" also won a part in the movie



Anthony Wong attended the "Laughing Gor" movie opening ceremony with heavy makeup around his eyes. Which was eye catching. He disclosed that he will be playing Michael Tse's Triad boss and will have 7 or 8 girlfriends. Tracy Ip who was also present will play a lawyer as well as one of his girlfriends. Anthony stated that he is the Triad version of "Wai Siu Bo" and praised Tracy being very obedient.

Fala Chen is "Laughing So", successfully got the role over Christine Kuo

Audiences are anxious to who "Laughing So" would be, Fala Chen finally successfully got the role. Yesterday Fala was at the final day of audition and her performance was excellent, eventually kicking rival Christine Kuo out of the race. As one of the final decision makers of the role, Stephan Chan revealed that Fala's acting was very solid, her Cantonese pronunciation was better than Christine Kuo's, no need to dub her voice, so they decided to choose Fala for the "Laughing So" role. Right now, Fala is busy filming for TVB new series "The Legend of Pu SongLing" and the Laughing Gor Film, seems like Fala's gonna be busy being in two places at once. But with Stephan Chan's help, Fala will be able to accommodate the busy schedule.

The "wife" person has finally been decided, Laughing Gor Michael Tse expressed yesterday that Fala of course has the basic requirements for the role. He said: "She has audience fate, will be Francis Ng's younger sister, her outer appearance is also very suitable. (How about being your wife?) Our height matches!"

The poster looks a bit weird, I expected a bit more from it. And I can't believe Michael's name is third? Lol, thought this movie was based off his character.
