TAIPEI – Hong Kong superstar Andy Lau makes a guest appearance in the upcoming film Red Line, a tribute to the late stuntman and actor Blackie Coe.
Lau, 61, plays a racing champion in a racing-themed film. This is his first Taiwanese work since his romantic comedy “Our Times” (2015) in which he appeared as a singer and actor.
His role was announced at a press conference held in Taipei last Friday to promote Blackie Ko’s second son Jacky Ko’s debut feature, Red Line.
Jackie’s older brother, singer and actor Alan Coe, co-wrote the script and also starred in the film.
At a press conference for the film, producer Chiu Li-kwan said:
Blackie Ko is best known for driving a sports car through Hukou Waterfall on China’s Yellow River to commemorate Hong Kong’s return to Chinese rule in 1997.
He and Lau frequently work together and have appeared in several films together.
They also sang a classic song, Stupid Child (1998), with Taiwanese singer-host Jackie Wu.
Redline is scheduled to open in Taiwan on April 27, coinciding with the 20th anniversary of the death of the stuntman, who died of an asthma attack in Shanghai in December 2003 at the age of 50.
