According to Hong Kong media, veteran actor Anthony Wong is currently in talks with TVB to film a new drama next year, which will mark his return to the TV station after a decade.

TVB reportedly hopes to ride on the skyrocketing popularity of Hong Kong martial arts films by producing a kungfu-themed series in 2014. As Anthony is known for his martial arts background as well as his previous role as the legendary Wing Chun grandmaster in Ip Man: The Final Fight, the actor has been highly sought after to be casted in the new drama.

Sources also revealed that the management has entrusted director Wong Jing and actor Eric Tsang to persuade Anthony to accept the deal. “Eric has been speaking to Anthony about returning [to TVB] since the beginning of the year,” an insider said. “The station is willing to pay any price to get him.”

While Anthony has no personal preference on the show’s lead actress, he is said to be very particular about the script, even requesting that his juniors in the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts participate in the scriptwriting process.
