Nicholas Tse recently admitted that he does intend to continue the “Raging Fire” series, but the death of director Benny Chan has put him at a loss on what to do next.

As reported on Mingpao, the actor, who is enjoying the current success of the late director’s posthumous work, stated that he has considered making a prequel and has actually many more ideas on where to go with the project.

“But Benny is no longer here. When I made “Raging Fire”, I told myself that I hope to continue on with this director, to make more action movies with him. But now that he is gone, I’m caught off guard. It’s not like I am able to just click with any director and to have the same trust to do dangerous scenes,” he said.

‘Raging Fire’ was Benny Chan’s last movie

However, Nic stressed that he will not let the franchise die, and will think of something eventually.

“As for whom I will work on it with and how to keep going, I don’t know for now,” he added.

Asked if he would direct the movies himself, the actor stated that it is not yet time for him to make his directorial debut.

“But I will not rule out becoming an action director,” he added.

Director Benny Chan passed away in August last year after a year of battling cancer. He was 58.
