He had to take care of his big brother who was suffering from pneumonia. He was in love with a dance teacher and had an affair with the mistress of a crime boss.

It will have singing, dancing and action with a blend of love, romance and gang violence. He said if he was making a Chinese language film, Chow Yun-Fat would be the first choice. But because it was a Hollywood production, they were still doing the casting. Woo said musicals were his favorite since childhood. When he was a young boy, he once sneaked into a movie theater to watch a musical and was discovered by the staff. He was slapped, rolled downstairs and broke his head.
