This would be the chance for Andy to repay the kindness back to TVB.
The story of the TV movie will be of magician, Andy should be playing the character of a magician as he’s crazy over magic these few years. Earlier Jay Chou also wanted to collaborate with him in a movie about magicians however no news thereafter, but Andy is always interested. With TVB variety and music department high officer Chen Jia-yang in charge of this movie, he said: “I’ve discussed with Andy for 6 months, he had read the script, he’s fine with it, most importantly is that he like to shoot this movie, he gave many suggestions, the female lead had yet been decided, he’s great in magic, thus he makes a good choice for this movie.” Chen added that the movie could last 1.5 hours or could be divided into part one and two, nothing had been decided yet.
