In 1992, Huang Baiming started filming "A Happy Event in the Family" and invited Zhou Yunfa to play the boss "Changman", but he refused, and in desperation, he went to Lin Zixiang again, and the other party readily agreed.
At that time, Huang Baiming's company had just been established, in order to make a name for itself and increase investors, so when planning for the filming of "Family Happy Events", the selection of actors was very important.
At first, Huang Baiming planned to let Lin Zixiang play the role of the eldest brother of the Chang family, the second eldest brother of the Chang family to play it himself, and the third eldest brother of the Chang family to be played by Leslie Cheung.
With Chow Yun-fat and Leslie Cheung, the movie box office is naturally no problem.
As a result, when looking for Zhou Yunfa, his schedule was already full, and he really couldn't find time, so he could only refuse.
No way, Huang Baiming went to Lin Zixiang again, and Lin Zixiang readily agreed.
However, what Huang Baiming did not expect was that when the camera was about to start, Lin Zixiang had to deal with the house because of the burning of the house in the United States, and he couldn't act.
Imminent, for a while, Huang Baiming could not find a suitable candidate.
At this time, he decided to find Stephen Chow, who had become popular all over the world by relying on nonsensical comedy.
And Stephen Chow not only offered a remuneration of 8 million, but also proposed to play with Maggie Cheung, and Leslie Cheung also said that he didn't want to play the third eldest of the Chang family, wanted to play the second eldest of the Chang family, and wanted to play with Mao Shunjun.
A movie has not yet started shooting, and there have been twists and turns in the casting alone, which if it were changed to others, it might have been done long ago.
However, Huang Baiming felt that the more difficult it was, the more he had to make it.
Therefore, he met all the requirements put forward by the actor one by one.
Then, unexpectedly, although the film experienced various problems in the early stage of preparation, it was quite smooth in the shooting process.
The film was made in only thirteen days.
Despite the short shooting time, the quality of the film is still very good.
As soon as the movie was released, it not only won a good reputation, but also achieved a very good box office, and the box office of 49 million Hong Kong dollars once again broke the box office record in Hong Kong.
In the film, whether it is Chang Man, the boss of the Chang family played by Huang Baiming, or Chang Shu, the second eldest of the Chang family played by Leslie Cheung, or Chang Huan, the third elder of the Chang family played by Stephen Chow, they are all very successful and give the characters distinctive characteristics.
Moreover, many classic bridges in the play are created by them on the spot.
For example, in the play, the three brothers discuss marriage together, which is played by the three people on the spot:
Huang Baiming said: Why don't you get married?
Leslie Cheung answered: It hurts too much to give birth!
In addition, the scene of Leslie Cheung and Mao Shunjun playing mahjong in the play was also added by their impromptu performance.
I have to say that these bridges add some life breath to this comedy movie and are more down-to-earth.
To be honest, Hong Kong filmmakers at that time were really talented and talented, and there was really nothing to say about acting.
It is now incomparable to the so-called actors.
