I Know Everything - Chapter 411
Chapter 411: Retaliation came so fast?
Yang Kaixin being the first person to join the cast of ‘Princess Returning Pearl’ spread through the industry.
Countless people were stunned that the role of Ziwei was decided so quickly.
Because many actresses that handed their resume didn’t receive any reply yet and there were even some that were still preparing to send it.
But since that person was Yang Kaixin, it was nothing weird about it.
Any cast the little princess joined was successful.
Even a stubborn director as Hao He, who never let others multiple filming, still turned a blind eye to Yang Kaixin when she rushed to another cast.
No matter how great Teacher Chu’s ‘Princess Returning Pearl’ was, it was just a TV series.
If it was another movie that wasn’t inferior to ‘Miracle in Cell No.7’, then it would be able to reject all external influences.
With Yang Feng’s influence and his money that could smash people to death, it was definitely not difficult for him to get the role of Yang Kaixin.
In addition to Yang Kaixin joining the cast, Xin Changkong was also recruiting staffs all over the place so the news of him joining also spread.
The name of Xin Changkong originally was at the bottom.
A bastard that cheated on his girlfriend and that lost all of his virtue after becoming famous, such a person should have long since been driven out of the entertainment industry.
However, he unexpectedly could rely on his relationship with Shui Qingshan to convince Teacher Lu Xiaofeng and Teacher Lu went to convince Teacher Chu Liuxiang. Then he got the important role of director and producer after the tests.
Those two posts basically gave Xin Changkong most of the control of the filming.
Considering that ‘Princess Returning Pearl’ was a script from Teacher Chu, it wouldn’t be bad and participating in it would be a big opportunity to train oneself as well as a big mark in the resume.
Therefore, many working in production staff called Xin Changkong, whether they knew him or not, to discuss about it.
Xin Changkong had been rotting away at his home for many years but it didn’t mean that he didn’t know anything about the Film and TV industries.
Xin Changkong knew who was talented and capable.
He successfully made 50 production staff, including executive producers, director of photography, set director etc… come to Lin’an for an interview.
Even though there were only 50, it was 50 teams.
For example, the director of photography didn’t come alone as his assistants would also come and it was at least 5 people.
If it was a more reputable one, it would have ten or so people. With five or so photographers, the photography’s group would be taken care of.
Unless it was a group of people that were there from the beginning like Zhu Mei, there were rarely any people who worked by themselves.
Modern film operation models had all entered the modern recruiting business.
This was also a good thing for the film crew as they didn’t have to recruit for every post and just manage it generally.
Xin Changkong had a lot of experience so he knew who to choose.
His first choice was obviously people he was familiar with but the entertainment circle recycled very fast so if there were better candidates, he would definitely choose them.
All in all, the preparation for ‘Princess Returning Pearl’ went on like that.
Everybody confirmed that there was another TV series produced by Teacher Chu Liuxiang.
Unlike for ‘Love Through Different Times’, ‘Princess Returning Pearl’ would be joined by Teacher Lu and would write the theme song for it just like he did in ‘Love Letter’.
Moreover, the main protagonist of ‘Princess Returning Pearl’ was Bu Yiyi who withdrew from ‘Love Through Different Times’.
Everyone smelled something was wrong.
It smelled like gunpowder.
Calf TV was also stunned by this.
Wen Fan sat in the office with a solemn expression and several of his staff also looked the same.
They all knew what they did would offend Chu Liuxiang but they didn’t expect him to retaliate so quickly.
Their ‘Love Through Different Times’ just started their hype and their filming crew hadn’t been set up yet but ‘Princess Returning Pearl’ there already started their grand preparation.
“How could this happen?” Wen Fan asked in confusion, “Is Chu Liuxiang that easily triggered? Or was he already prepared? Launching another TV series and the genre is also similar to ‘Love Through Different Times’?”
“We haven’t received any info from it and it seemed to have come overnight.” Shi Siwen, the PR director, spoke.
“Maybe this is just a sham?” Diao Bo, the finance director, wondered, “Maybe they are eager to shame us so made a ploy to disrupt our morals?”
“That is impossible!” The golden producer Zha Houxin shook his head repeatedly, “Who is Chu Liuxiang? How could a super-tier writer and celebrity use this type of ploy and ruin their reputation? If he made some random trash script, it would be worse than suicide!”
The artist’s manager Zhu Tao agreed, “Right, even Yang Kaixin joined the cast so how could Yang Feng let his daughter go to a sham to film? He’s a smart guy!”
“What puzzles me most is the production company used.” Wen Fan had a lot of questions on his mind, “I searched a bit and Fengxiang Film is a new company established only a few days ago. The legal representative is Chen Huan, who is Lu Xiaofeng…if they wanted to face against us, shouldn’t they go to the three big film companies or Shanhai Streaming?”
“Yeah, I can’t figure it out either.” Director Wei Minggong had a hollow smile, “It makes people feel that they are playing around, that they will definitely beat us, they will definitely succeed and definitely make money.”
“Who can guarantee the success of a TV series before its release? Moreover, ‘Love Through Different Times’ script is also excellent! Very few people in the country can write a script of this caliber, Chu Liuxiang is really a genius in this regard!” Shi Siwen said in disbelief.
“Well, the only thing we can be sure of right now is that ‘Princess Returning Pearl’ will not be bad, at least it wouldn’t in Chu Liuxiang’s eyes.” Wen Fan said, “We should be vigilant so we don’t lose out due to carelessness and become laughing stocks.”
Zhou Houxin agreed, “Don’t worry Young Master Wen, we all chose the best and popular actors. Let alone a hastily made film company, in the TV series industry, if we Calf TV say we’re number two, nobody would dare to claim to be number one!”
His faith wasn’t unfounded.
Whether it was in reviews or ratings, nobody could surpass Calf TV.
Wei Minggong also smirked and said, “I dare not claim anything else but at least, our second female lead has better acting than Yang Kaixin.”
It was a fact that Yang Kaixin was beautiful and it was also a fact that she was from a very wealthy family but it was also a fact that she didn’t have any acting skill.
A TV series actually used Yang Kaixin as the second female lead, the end product of that TV series really didn’t give people a lot of confidence.
While they were laughing, someone suddenly knocked on the door.
When Wen Fan told him to come in, the secretary that opened had an ugly expression as he said,
“Young Master Wen, Lai Haijin went crazy! He openly scolded us when doing an interview and did it viciously!”
