Having worked together more than seven years ago, the two were tirelessly bantering as old friends do with Wallace Huo even joking that he took the role because it means that he can fight Yang Mi. Oh, he also implied that the middle Yang Mi was the least realistic one of the three copies.
It looks like the actor has gotten his wish more or less as the movie is guaranteed to be action-packed though the person has the shorter end of the stick remains to be seen. After all, Wallace Huo who plays the cruel and crazed big bad will surely have a tough time going against not one but three versions of Yang Mi. As part of the time warp, she becomes a desperate mother, a quick thinker and a badass.
