Oooh – Edison Chen on the big screen. Five years after the hit film “Initial D” (directed by Andrew Lau, who will now be the producer), Jay Chou will step behind the camera as director.
The film, based on a Japanese manga and anime series, starred Jay Chou in the lead role as a delivery boy whose driving skills up and down the hairpin curves of Mt. Akina attract the attention of street racers. Edison Chen played a mentor-like character and fellow racer. Now, in this sequel, Chen looks to be reprising his role, and Chou will be the director.
Interesting… last I heard of Chen was he was going to design a clothing line… or something like that. Now he’s going to be onscreen again – for millions to see not in his naked glory.
