Fans of the 90s’ “Young And Dangerous” (古惑仔之人在江湖) film will be delighted to know that the superstar cast are returning to the big screen.
Their upcoming crime-action film, titled “Golden Job” (黄金兄弟), is expected to debut in October. The “brothers” – Ekin Cheng (鄭伊健), Michael Tse (謝天華), Chin Ka Lok (錢嘉樂), Jordan Chan (陳小春), and Jerry Lamb (林曉峰) – will play 5 soon-to-retire con artists who get caught up in a heist pulled by an international drug lord.
“Golden Job” (黄金兄弟) marks approximately 20 years since these famous actors first appeared together in the 1990s Hong Kong mafia hit series. The 1st instalment of “Young And Dangerous” first came out in 1996. Subsequently, the 6th and final movie was made in 2000. Sadly, “Golden Job” (黄金兄弟) is unrelated to the original triad-themed shows.
Rounding up the star-studded cast is veteran actor Eric Tsang. He will take on the role of the group’s mentor. The 90-minute long action flick, which began shooting in August 2016, is directed by acclaimed choreographer Chin Ka Lok and produced by Eric Tsang.
Produced by The Entertainer Production Company and The Artists Company, shooting for “Golden Job” (黄金兄弟) took place in various parts around the world. They include Hungary, Montenegro, Japan, China, Taiwan, and Inner Mongolia. Movie-goers can expect plenty action scenes including more shootouts and car chases.
The suave-looking actors recently made an appearance at the 4th annual international Jackie Chan action movie week on 18th July. Fans were thrilled to see them performed the movie’s theme song on stage.
Jackie Chan, who funded the movie, said, “The spirit of brotherhood that these 5 actors share, both on screen and in real life, is a positive energy that our society needs.”
Mothership Singapore decided to compile a random fun fact by calculating the combined age of the main cast, most of which are in their 50s. Their combined age is *drum rolls* 251 years old. Ekin Cheng is 50, Jordan Chan is 51, Michael Tse is 51, Chin Ka-lok is 52, while Jerry Lamb is 47. Meanwhile, the oldest of them all – Eric Tsang is 65.
This goes to show that age is not an obstacle for their star power to excel in the entertainment business. Longtime fans are still excited to see more content from these entertainers.
Mark your calendars, “Golden Job” (黄金兄弟) is expected to debut worldwide in October 2018. However, Malaysia has received an earlier tentative date on 27th September 2018.
