11 Sep – Having collaborated on numerous projects in the past two decades, filmmaker Jack Neo is reuniting again with fellow Singaporean artiste Wang Lei for a brand-new movie.
Wang Lei will be playing the titular character of "The Story of the Fishmonger Wang" (tentative title), which is based on his real life and follows the transformation of his glamorous job to a fishmonger.
Also starring in the movie is Jaspers Lai, who has previously worked with both the abovementioned director and actor in the "Ah Boys" franchise. It is not revealed, however, what character he will be portraying.
Other than working together on the new movie, Wang Lei will also be joining Jack Neo in the latter's effort of growing Asia Momentum Media (AMM) Entertainment's presence in the region, as Wang Lei has recently been appointed as the ambassador of AMM.
