Wong Jing’s (王晶) sensual Category III films Naked Killer <赤裸羔羊> and Raped by an Angel <強姦> has been guilty pleasures for many viewers. Recently, the director is diligently planning his new film Gigolo King <鴨王>, a Category III film which will center on a male escort.
The film, which is slated to begin filming in mid-October, will star 23-year-old Dominic Ho (何浩文) as the central character. Wong Jing, who likes to use fresh-faced leads in his films, said he hopes to push Dominic as Hong Kong’s next sexy male god. It is said that Dominic’s role in the film is very similar to Simon Yam’s (任達華) classic role Sam, from the 1991 comedy Gigolo and Whore <雞鴨戀>.
Starring alongside Dominic will be Candy Yuen (袁嘉敏), Jeana Ho (何佩瑜), Hazel Tong (唐紫睿), and Fan Ling (樊玲). Candy, who is under the management of Peter Chan (陳可辛) and Sandra Ng (吳君如), turned down a role in Sandra’s upcoming New Year film in order to star in Gigolo King.
Candy disclosed, “Wong Jing said he has already noticed me five years ago. He praised my looks and said I was sexy. I am also very confident with his directing. In addition, I have quite a lot of screen time, so this is an opportunity I cannot pass up!”
Candy further revealed that she will expose a lot more skin than usual for the film.
According to reports via Jayne Stars, Wong Jing has already started the pre-production work for his film and is scouting possible shooting locations. He will also arrange a group of girls to show up in bikinis at a press conference.
Wong Jing declined to reveal the intimate scenes planned for the film. However, he said that the story of the film will be “more interesting than the skin.”
