This year is the 20th anniverary of Impact Entertainment, other than Alan Tam's Rave & Dance Party at the Hong Kong Coliseum in August, it had also scheduled to start shooting a new movie at the end of the year or beginning of next year. It was heard that the film will have a production fee of US$200 million from Mainland China, Hong Kong, Japan and Korea movie companies, Daniel Lee will be the director and location shooting will be carried out in Mainland China.

The film will be a war theme narrating general Zhao Zhi Long of the Three Kingdom life and achievements, it'll be based on the comic book. Andy Lau will be cast as Zhao Zhi Long and he will Zhao from young till 70 years old, Zhao was the oldest general during the 3 Kingdom period as he brave his life to protect the country and will battle to his last breathe.

Actually John Wu had also been preparing a movie based on Three Kingdom and will start shooting in Feburary next year, Chow Yun Fat, Tony Leung and John Chiang was casted as the lead characters thus Andy might fight face-to-face with John Wu's vehicle!

On the allegation, Andy did admit that he had discussed to work on the "Zhao" project as he exclaim that he once signed the management contract with Impact thus he's one of their family member, he'll try his best if they need help as he'll have a tight schedule at the end of the year, thus more details need to be discussed.

Meanwhile Impact's spokesman express that the company had no film projects for 9 years but collaborating with Andy concides with their collaboration of more than 20 years and Andy is one of the shareholder. When asked if the project will go head-on with John Wu's project, he says: "Although the background will be similiar but the time of screening might be different." With regards to whom will be cast as Zhao, he expressed that it was yet to be confirmed but when told that Andy had raise his asking fees, he says: "Never mind, it's worth it!"
