The actor plays the role of an inspector of the Counter Terrorism Response Unit in the new movie, which boasted star-studded cast that includes Jacky Cheung, Nick Cheung, Wang Xueqi, Choi Si-won, and Ji Jin-hee.
The opportunity to work with a lot of great actors was the reason Shawn Yue took the offer to star in Sunny Luk and Longman Leong’s “Helios”, Singtao Daily reported.
Shawn disclosed, “Out of the seven actors, I have only worked with Wang Xueqi. I believe that we will create new sparks.”
The actor also doesn’t mind the fact that the star-studded cast means that his screen time had to be reduced.
“If everybody is fighting for screen time, the movie will end up being four hours long!” he said.
The movie, which has opened in cinemas since 30 April has already broke RMB160 million (approximately USD25.8 million) at the box office.
When asked if there will be a sequel, Shawn replied, “It would depend on how well the performance is.”
