3 Apr – Wong Kar Wai recently revealed that he has no intention to make a biopic about good friend and actor, Leslie Cheung.
As reported on TVB News World website, Wong updated his Weibo and wrote, "I don't think I would make a Leslie Cheung movie and cast anybody to play him, because I think he cannot be replaced. He was a very special person."
During his lifetime, Leslie has worked with Wong in many films, including "Days of Being Wild", "Ashes of Time" and the controversial "Happy Together", where Leslie was nominated for Best Actor at the Golden Horse Awards and the Hong Kong Film Awards.
Meanwhile, producer Hsu Feng also refused to remake Leslie Cheung's film, "Farewell My Concubine", stating that no one would be able to replace him in the movie.
However, it was recently revealed that a South Korean film company is interested to remake Leslie's hit film, "Moonlight Express", which also starred Japanese actress, Tokiwa Takako. It was reported that the right of the film has already been purchased and that the new version will be fully helmed and cast with South Korean stars.
