Richie Jen and Nick Cheung co-star in "Bodies at Rest".
16 Aug – "Bodies at Rest" co-stars Nick Cheung and Richie Jen admitted that working with Finnish director Renny Harlin in the said movie was a new experience for both of them.
As reported on Mingpao, the two stars shared that unlike Hong Kong filmmakers, Harlin had a faster pace and his own take on how to shoot their scenes.
"When you work with Hong Kong directors, there would be a lot of notes since none had an official script. They would change story development at any time. It felt more casual and bolder. But Renny is very precise in setting up the mood," said Richie.
Nick agreed, saying that Harlin has his own personal style when it comes to directing the film.
Asked if he shared any ideas with the director seeing that he has helmed his own movies as well, Nick said that he is not the kind of actor who would interfere with the director's creativity.
"I do my work as the actor and respect his direction," he added.
