KUALA LUMPUR: Come Chinese New Year, Malaysians will be treated to Ipoh-born international actress Datuk Michelle Yeoh's latest film, Silver Hawk, an action flick in which she portrays a masked vigilante. 

Yeoh and her co-stars, popular Taiwan singer/actor Richie Ren, Brandon Chang and Li Bing Bing along with director Jingle Ma are now in Malaysia to promote the film. 

A grand premiere was held at Golden Screen Cinemas, Mid Valley Megamall on Friday night. 

Among those who attended the premiere were Datin Seri Ena Ling (the wife of Utar Council chairman Datuk Seri Dr Ling Liong Sik), Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk M. Kayveas, singers Ning Baizura and Amy Mastura and badminton player Wong Choon Hann. 

At a press conference yesterday, Yeoh said the audience responded well to the film.

She also talked about her character, which she described as different from her other film roles. 

“In all my previous movies, I played very serious characters but for Silver Hawk, I'm much more relaxed and I'm smiling more,” she said. 

The film marks the first time Yeoh has worked with famed Hong Kong cinematographer and director, Ma, whom she had always wanted to work with. 

She said a sequel to Silver Hawk was on the cards but the production date had yet to be fixed. 

Silver Hawk hits the Malaysian theatres on Jan 22.
