The latest music video from Taiwanese pop star Jay Chou… “Cowboy on the Run”. The song is very different from all his previous songs. I am not a huge fan of Jay, but I kinda like this song…

Hong Kong actor Chow Yun Fat confirmed that he has quit the cast of “The Battle of Red Cliff.” He made the ‘resignation’ last Friday (April 13), but the news has just been discovered by the press on Sunday (April 15).

Some reports were speculating that that Chow was ‘fired’ because of his unreasonable demands; but according to Chow, he quits the production because he felt that he can’t play the role well with the short amount of time for preparation.

The movie requires the cast to speak in Mandarin, and it is not Chow’s mother tongue. Chow said that he had requested the script to be provided earlier so that he could have more time to prepare for his character; but he only managed to get his script a week ago, and he felt that he was short of time to do the preparation.

It is another setback for director John Woo; a month ago actor Tony Leung quitted the movie for personal reason, and now it’s Chow… meaning that he lost both of his original candidate for the 2 most important characters in the movie.

A few candidates have been rumored to replace Chow’s role, which include Daniel Wu, Jay Chou and Chang Chen.
