The upcoming TW-movie Bad Girl (女孩壞壞) with Ella Chen and Mike He held its pre-production costume fitting and first photo shoot of its two lead actors yesterday. Ella plays a hardscrabble high school student who loves her family, and forms a girl gang called Bad Girls to protect the neighborhood and keep it free of crime. One day a movie production comes to her high school to film, and the lead actor Justin (played by Mike) is an arrogant movie star who dazzles all the girls. Due to circumstances beyond her control, Ella’s character becomes the lead in the movie-within-a-movie, pitting her against Justin, and sparks fly.
I have to be honest – these pictures are cute (like, really cute), and word on the street is Mike and Ella have immediate chemistry, mainly because they are easy-going actors who have a great sense of humor in real life, and have known each other for quite a few years. While it looks like Ella borrowed Rainie Yang‘s new hairstyle, I have to confess I like this haircut on Ella way more that her usual butch-manly do that she sports in most of her dramas.
I’m going to have a bit of a hard time buying Ella as a high school girl, but hey, if the movie is enteraining in a silly but fun way, that’s the best I can hope for. Bad Girl will start shooting in the early Summer. This means Vic Zhou and Ella’s movie Destiny’s Pair will likely go into production earliest at the end of the year.
