Still a very intriguing topic to this day...


The notes below from LoveHKfilm's review of DOBW are very interesting. These and WKW's description of TL's performance in the film as "mesmerizing" have aroused my desire to see the 'missing footage'.

Tony Leung Chiu-Wai appears very briefly at the end of the film in a seemingly unconnected cameo. The purpose of his introduction was actually to lead into a follow-up film, but the sequel was never realized. The commercial failure of the film made a sequel unviable, despite Wong Kar-Wai having shot many, many feet of film with Tony Leung Chiu-Wai. Even now Wong is asked about a supposed sequel to Days of Being Wild, but the possibility of the missing footage ever being shown has grown increasingly remote.
Wong Kar-Wai has made mention that In the Mood for Love was his unofficial follow-up to Days of Being Wild, in which the characters played by Tony Leung Chiu-Wai and Maggie Cheung embark on their near-affair. Maggie Chueng's character is named So Lai-Chun in both films.

Or WKW should, at least include that footage on an anniversary edition of "Days." I've always wanted to see that footage, too! Any work with Tony and Maggie is always of interest to me! Smile
