MANILA, Philippines - Taiwanese superstar Ken Zhu, member of the wildly popular quartet F4, is expected to arrive in the country this week. He will stay for 10 days to work on “Batanes,” an independent film opposite Iza Calzado.

Upon his arrival at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport, Ken—Xi-Men in the hit television series “Meteor Garden”—will board a private jet to Batanes Island, according to director Adolf Alix Jr.

“He will be back in November to promote the movie,” said Alix, who filmed the critically acclaimed “Kadin” on the same wind-swept island off the northernmost tip of Luzon.


Ken plays the role of a stranded fisherman from Taiwan. Iza will portray a Manila sales girl who relocates to Batanes, and is torn between Ken and an Ivatan portrayed by Joem Bascon.

In a phone interview with Inquirer Entertainment on Saturday, Alix said the filming of “Batanes” began four days ago.

The main cast members—Iza, Joem, Sid Lucero, Coco Martin, Bembol Roco, Daria Ramirez, Julio Diaz, Mike Tan and Glaiza de Castro—are expected to arrive in Batanes on Sunday.

“Batanes,” produced by Ignite Media, will be shown in local theaters starting Nov. 28. Alix co-directs “Batanes” with Dave Hukom, Ignite Media chief executive officer.

and befriends Fat (Lam Chi Chung). The two fall into a trap and the
Shanghai triads want to hunt them down. Meanwhile, Ma also has a crush
on singer Lung (Emme Wong), but will the love between them blossom?
With so many different parties plotting against each other, will Ma
survive all the conspiracies?


A martial arts comedy produced by Sharon Yeung and directed by Ye Yong

constantly fights with Chan Kwok Kun, a secret society boss, while Lam
Tse Chong again brings about comic relief in this movie. Bruce Leung
plays a master of kungfu. This My Way Film production also stars Vaness
Wu Fan Siu Wong, Emme Wong. Fan Siu Wong, who also action directs the

reflect the true spirit of martial arts. Marco (Vanness Wu), a
vigorous, natural-born fighter, is in search of his father, and all the
clues point to Shanghai, the booming city of the future. Set in the
dazzling 1940's, it is during this quest that he will, make friends,
find love and build up his status as the true kung fu master.
