Jay Chou hopes new movie will write him into history books, jokes about challenging Kobeby kelvin@multistars - 17th August 2012
Jay Chou attended a function in Beijing. He revealed in his new movie "Rooftop" he has mixed in musical elements, he hopes the movie can "write him into history books". He also said Wang Xue Qi's character has the "feeling of being a loving father". But when asked why he didn't invite his rumoured girlfriend Hannah to take part, he said he hopes to use a newcomer, he awkwardly avoided the question. Talking about his upcoming match with NBA star Kobe, Jay Chou funnily "challenged" him: "Kobe should be careful!"
On the day Jay Chou wore a black suit, flower pattern trousers to the spokesperson event, as soon as he came out the fans praised him for being "skinny". In the commercial he filmed for this brand, Jay Chou wore a school uniform, in the library he meets up with the short haired female lead. He smiled saying this commercial was "Secret 2".
But, when asked how the filming for "Secret 2" was going, "Director Chou" smiled saying a lot of things happened: "There's not much of a 'secret' anymore, it's been explained clearly already. Before I wanted to get two kids to be in it, but now they've grown up." If it continues like this, "Secret 2" will have to wait until he has finished "Rooftop".
Towards "Rooftop", Jay Chou is also very secretive, he only revealed that the plot is not related to "Secret 2", he has mixed in musical, action and love elements, but the musical will be "logical musicals, not like Bollywood where a group of people suddenly run in and dance, and then suddenly disappear". Later they will be getting shots from Beijing and Shanghai.
In terms of the cast, it has already been revealed Wang Xue Qi is participating, at the Taiwan press conference he even sang a bit of Jay Chou's "Listen To Mother's Words". Towards Wang Xue Qi's vocals, Jay Chou praised him: "He has good tone, there's a 'listen to father's words' feel to it." He also said "he's very man, and seems very loving, like a loving father". Towards Wang Xue Qu joining, "Director Chou" sighed saying: "We've gotten a very amazing actor, this proves I am not playing, I'm taking the filming seriously, I hope this movie will write my name into history books."
As for the choice of actresses, Jay Chou made things clear at the start: "The female lead will be announced afterwards, this time I'm not the one choosing, Will Liu is choosing. He wants to get a bit more of a pure girl, plus he doesn't want to get a familiar face." But instead the media questioned that the requirements fit perfectly for his rumoured girlfriend Hannah, Jay Chou upon hearing this embarrassingly said: "Don't talk about this topic."
Apart from this, Jay Chou revealed he will be releasing his new album in December. Towards some people questioning that he "won't have any time to write songs because he is busy filming a movie", he explained that he is a fast song writer: "I wrote half of the songs ages ago already, I'm fast at writing songs, please don't worry about that."
On the 18th, Jay CHou and Will Liu's team will be having a basketball match with NBA star Kobe's team. When asked about this, he immediately perked up and said: "I think, Kobe should be careful." He smiled saying he is preparing to compare free throws with him. Some of the media misunderstood and thought he had another NBA star LeBron James in his team, Jay Chou sighed: "If I had him that would be great, but this time he won't be coming, so we can only hope we don't lose by too much."
