Tony has no new film recently, but a diamond company offered him NT$50 million (around HK$11.4 million) to feature in their new ad. Besides the high paid, the production team was as strong as a big movie, with Stanley Kwan being the director, and William Chang being the art director.
The new ad would be filmed in Guangzhou. Tony would be acting himself in the ad, hence there would be a number of scenes of Tony in movie sets. The diamond company aimed to target very high end customers. They thought Tony's devotion and perfection to work suited the image of "impossible perfect" of their products, and they were willing to pay a high price to have Tony to present their products.
Tony received HK$10 million for his earlier ad for Head & Shoulders Shampoo. This time, his pay jumped even higher, plus a budget of NT$10 million for production, and NT$1 billion for promotion.
As for Stanley Kwan, he is preparing for his new film about the famous actor of Peking Opera Mui Lan Fong, and already raised HK$80 million for the production. Tony is the best actor for the role.
