You may well have heard that Vincent Chiu walked out off his latest movie “Special identity” also starring Donnie Yen, due to difficulties during recent filming.
At first, Vincent spoke out that on set they would continuously keep changing the script and that this was not a good thing, as they should know where the movie is going from the start to finish.
Now it’s been told that Donnie Yen is going to take Vincent to court due to recent allegations about what Vincent as said about him to the press and other fellow actors. But the world of Asian cinema are also speaking out about this and are taking sides of both actors.
Shu Qi and Kara Hui expressed their support for Yen, while others like Hong Kong veteran action star Yuen Wah and Chinese actress Xu Jiao spoke out in support of Chiu, reported Hong Kong media.
“Donnie Yen is very serious in whatever he does and thinks of ways to make sure every single frame is perfect.
“Even when the weather is cold and he is shivering, cramping up, when he hears ‘Action’, Donnie Yen will immediately perform without a single word of complaint,” said Shu Qi.
Shaw Brothers legend Kara Hui also had this to say about Donnie Yen, “Donnie, I have known you since you were young, I know you are passionate about film and have high expectations of yourself.
“I hope you won’t be affected by all these controversies. Keep going!”
“I worked with Vincent Chiu on Wu Dang and feel that he is very enthusiastic about his work, personable … I believe Instructor Chiu, strongly support him!” said CJ7 star, Chinese actress Xu Jiao.
Yuen Wah, who had appeared in countless Hong Kong action films, echoed Xu’s sentiments and backed Chiu.
Vincent has also spoke about the fact, if he does have to go to court over what as been said, the money will not hurt him if he loses,
“All ten properties I bought at a low price in Beijing are now worth six times more.
“Even if I stop working, I won’t have any difficulty getting by,” Chiu told the media recently, in response to Yen’s announcement that he would take Chiu to court.
“This issue affects my reputation. I must get justice, because they have insulted my professionalism”.
