God of Gamblers Return (1994) Wong Jing Interview 賭神2: 王晶訪問


The name of “God of Gamblers”
was founded by Jimmy Heung
He read a very cheap book
and found this name
Basically, the character was different
from Chau Yun-Fat’s
It was a ghost
I thought the book was badly written
But the name “God of Gamblers” was great
So I thought
“Why don’t we make it as a movie”
After he recalled his memory
He first saw his brother Lung Fong
I want the audience think that
he was sticking between recalling
and not recalling his memory
Audience know Lung Fong
killed his family…
and his girlfriend Zhang Min
But did he know this when he waked up?
Did he remember
Lung Fong wanted to kill him?
In the movie, I’d planned he didn’t
But actually he did
He faked it out
His mind was very complicated
Since the original setting
didn’t have enough space
I moved the ward to the outdoor
and changed the sitting room into a ward
I asked Chau Yun Fat
to act out this difficult scene
and he did very well
Much better than I expected
In that few years
a few people truly knew…
how to make a gambling movie but me
Apart from gambling
I also put many action
and humor in the series
A few people could do it
like me but Jeff Lau
who made “All For The Winner”
I enjoyed it very much
He had excellent sense of humor
He created Stephen Chow
After that Stephen and I worked
together in “God of Gamblers ll”
and
“God of Gamblers ll Back to Shanghai”
I don’t think I will give a glance…
to other gambling movies
apart from Jeff’s
Absolutely, though he doesn’t gamble
he’s definitely a good actor
Considering the character Gao Jin
He played it so real, so convincing
He actually didn’t play cards
or just played a few hands for leisure
with truck drivers
before working after meals
He mostly played 1 or 2 dollars
He doesn’t gamble
but he is really an excellent actor
So apart from him
I can’t think of anyone
who can play Gao Jin even now
I didn’t think I have to guide him
I’ve known him almost 20 years
I know how good his acting skills is
I know him as much as…
John Woo, Ringo Lam and Johnnie To
I know him since he first started acting
We keep contact all these years
So I know how great he is
All I had to do was to tell him my idea
And he could immediately do what I want
He is really an excellent actor
