Hong Kong’s award-winning comedian-actress Sandra Ng 吴君如 will be in town on 12th November. Together with Singapore’s comedian-actor Mark Lee 李国煌, they will be presenting their first ever movie collaboration A FANTASTIC GHOST WEDDING 《非常婚事》, which will be hitting local cinemas from 20th November!
Sandra Ng and Mark Lee will share their filming experience of working together for the very first time on A Fantastic Ghost Wedding. Young actor Keane Chan will also share his debut feature-film making experience. Director Meng Ong has been nominated for the New Talent Award at the Hong Kong Asian Film Festival 2014. He will be attending a Q&A session after the festival screening of the film on 14th November followed by the awards presentation.
The cast and crew will also be gracing the A FANTASTIC GHOST WEDDING Singapore Gala Premiere on the same evening.
Besides the two acclaimed leading actors, the movie also stars up-and-coming Taiwanese actor Wang Po-Chieh 王柏杰 (Paradise in Service《军中乐园》, Bodyguards and Assassins《十月围城》), famous local actor-radio presenter Marcus Chin陈建彬, highly respected Hong Kong theatre/comedy actor Jim Chin 詹瑞文 and Australian-Japanese Hollywood actor Kenji Fitzgerald. Special introduction goes to the young actor Keane Chan陈星兆 who plays the boy medium (Mark Lee’s son) in the film, this being his debut feature.
Local getai legend Liu Ling Ling 刘玲玲, popular comedian Henry Thia程旭辉, also make special appearances in the movie.
With a production budget of SGD $1.9 million, A FANTASTIC GHOST WEDDING relates the story of how a former singer hires a famous boy medium and his father to find a bride for her late son, but an unexpected choice by the bridegroom leads to one heck of a Chinese ghost wedding. This unusual drama-comedy draws on how two families relate to death very differently (one relies on it for their livelihood, while it causes the breakdown of the other), but yet the setup of a traditional posthumous ghost marriage links them all together and brings about life-changing revelations.
A FANTASTIC GHOST WEDDING is presented by Scout Pictures; in association with Sundream Motion Pictures (Hong Kong), V Media Enterprises, One Production Film Company (Taiwan), Limelight Media, Zingshot Productions and Iceberg Design; with the support of Singapore Film Commission, Sundance Institute Feature Film Program, Taiwan Golden Horse Film Project Promotion and distributed by Golden Village Pictures.
A FANTASTIC GHOST WEDDING opens on 20th November in Singapore; 4th December in Hong Kong and Malaysia; January 2015 in Taiwan.
