Taiwan pop superstar Jay Chou is continuing his love affair with the silver screen with plans to launch his directing debut.
Hong Kong veteran actor Anthony Wong let the news slip at the press conference for his new film "The Painted Veil." He said Jay Chou invited him to play his father in his new film, which will start shooting in January. He did not reveal the working title for the new film.
Jay Chou has already scored a number of hits in the cinema world. Director Zhang Yimou praised the singer for his performance in the blockbuster "Curse of the Golden Flower." Jay Chou also showcased his talent when he directed the music video for the movie’s theme song.
The new film reportedly will be finished before March, when Jay Chou will head the cast of another movie called "Slam Dunk."
