Director Cai Yue Xun is set to make a movie version of it. He plans to begin shooting with the same cast and crew again this fall. As Black & White makes its jump to the big screen, it will have an even bigger ending. Cai Yue Xun claims they will splurge more money this time with a budget of 100 million!

Turning Kaohsiung into Miami raises Tourism interests


<Black & White> contains 24 episodes with 60 minutes each. The production has been through 5 typhoons and floods. It took over 8 months for director Cai Yue Xun to complete this project. Despite of all the obstacles, this drama has proved to be a fine piece of work. Since its debut on PTS, last week's ratings averaged at 1.66 and its highest was up to 2. It has become a hot topic among netizens, even posters of Zai Zai and Mark Zhao have been stolen from retail stores. Other souvenirs like photo albums, mugs, and police badges are also sought after items. In the drama, Cai Yue Xun impressed many by turning Kaohsiung into Miami. Locations like Kaohsiung Ai He, Dream Mall, and the subway are now popular attractions. The fever over <Black & White> has helped push ahead plans for a movie version.


Bigger movie scenes with International locations

Cai Yue Xun states that they had always planned to do a movie version of Black & White. He had to wait until the drama became truly popular before pushing this project ahead. The <Black &White> movie script is currently in its first draft. The ending and sets will be bigger, and the hamburger place from the TV version will be blown up. Cai Yue Xun said: "The weapons and lethality are going to be 4 to 5 times greater than the TV version." With a budget topping 100 million (NT), there are also plans for international casts and shooting locations, in addition to bringing back Zai Zai, Mark Zhao and the original crew.



Original cast and crew brings familiarity to the set

In what is said to be the movie sequel of <Black & White>, how will it conclude for the relationship between Zai Zai, Mark Zhao, Ivy Chen and Janine Zhang?

Filming Black & White film sequel continues as planned without Vic Zhou[/red

The production for the movie sequel of hit Taiwanese drama series, Black & White, is stuck in its own development hell.

Ever since the nomination list for the Taiwan Golden Bell Awards was released, rumours on the discord between the two lead actors Vic Zhou and Mark Chao have been spreading like wildfire.

After the Golden Bell Awards, Vic reportedly requested to have a look at the film script. However, director Tsai Yueh Hsun’s company wanted the actor to readjust his work schedule instead, causing things to reach a standstill.

On various occasions, director Tsai openly expressed his plans to wait for Vic despite the latter’s busy schedule. Mark had also openly declare that he will not take on the movie if Vic is not starring in it. However, production has to start by April 2010 as investors are panning for a Christmas release next year.

In a meeting two days ago, Tsai finally cleared the air on Vic’s participation in the movie. The producer, Yu Xiao Hui, shared that the fifth version of the altered script still includes Vic’s character, however, Vic’s busy schedule and non-commitment to the movie is causing much headache to the team.

Tsai jokingly commented, “As to how we should resolve this problem, I welcome everyone to send in their scripts.”

A representative from Tsai’s company expressed that they might have to strike off Vic’s role in the show “because there can never be another Chen Zai Tian (Vic’s character in the series).”

While Vic is currently in Taipei filming his upcoming movie, Ai Ni Yi Wan Nian, his manager commented on the decision made by Tsai and said, “Didn’t they say that they would not shoot without Vic?”

“I respect the decision made by director Tsai and I can only say that it is a pity.”
