    Let me guess, they’ll all be young, pretty, uncharismatic mainlanders nobody has ever heard of?

    but of course why when he’s making movies for the Chinese market would he want to hire anyone from China…i mean that would be like American movies using Americans! That would never happen right?

    The man just unveiled the company and announced his plans, he told me that he’s open to seeing people from anywhere and looking at Sammo’s past track record i think we can expect him to be selecting some good people
