Donnie, who also serves as the action choreographer for the remake, will star in the film alongside Wang Baoqiang (王宝强), Simon Yam (任達華), and Eva Huang (黄圣依).The aforementioned scene which was shows Donnie have a nightmare, required Donnie to roll his eyes back and forth in his sleep. With bright lighting shining on his face and having to stay still in a physically compact environment, Donnie looked very uncomfortable and exhausted. The simple scene resulted in several outtakes.As soon as the cameras stopped rolling, Donnie jumped out of bed and began to do stretching exercises. Donnie admitted that the scene made his body numb and gave him muscle cramps. His eyes dried quickly because of the strong camera light, and he had to use eye drops consistently.
