Starring Andy Lau, Tong Dawei, Zhang Jingchu and Lin Chiling, Switch will be screened in Hong Kong cinemas on 12 June 2013, Andy and Lin Chiling will be attending the Hong Kong premiere on 10 June, however Zhang Jingchu will be absent as she would be in England.
The film has location shooting in many countries, Dubai gave Andy the most impression. Andy was delighted when he recalled his location shooting in Dubai, “I completed many of the action scenes of this film on my own, we were rushing for time during shooting as we tried shooting at 4 different venues in Dubai within one day. To save time, we changed our costume in the car during the 10 minutes ride, we can immediately start shooting when we alighted from the car, very efficient.”
Despite the rush in shooting, but one particular romantic scene of Andy and Lin Chiling in a beach in Dubai need to shoot slowly because the director hope to capture the beautiful scenery of the sky and sea, it required close to one day to shoot this relatively easy scene.
Chiling quipped that the wind at the beach was strong and her hair was blown messy which made her embarrassing when reading dialogue. Lucky there was the experience Andy as whenever he noticed sand or strand of hair on Chiling’s face, he would asked the crew members to touch up for her, it happened many times thus delayed the shooting. The understanding Andy did not complaint and Chiling thanked him for his understanding.
