Vanness Wu forms a new band

The former F4 member mocked himself for being part of the boyband in his upcoming movie

Taiwanese actor Vanness Wu's upcoming movie The Road Less Travelled will open in theatres on Dec 12.

The film tells the story of five music lovers -- Vanness Wu, Jimmy Hung, Dean Fujioka, Long Chen Han and Eric Tu -- and their road to forming the band SMASH. The quintet made their official debut on Nov 13, attracting more than 300 fans at a promotional event.

This is Vanness's third group in his showbiz career. He debuted as F4, together with Jerry Yan, Vic Chou and Ken Zhu, and later collaborated with Korean singer Kangta.

When asked if he is worried about falling out with good friend Jimmy, Vanness replied, "All groups have their share of ups and downs, but at the end of the day, we're still friends. This group is different from before; we have chemistry with each other."

In the film, the singer mocked himself for being a former F4 member, saying, "You wouldn't put me into silly idol groups like F4 and Tension, would you?"

The singer confessed that "rock n' roll is every man's dream" and revealed that he is the lead singer of SMASH. The group will soon be holding a concert tour around Taiwan to promote the movie and hoped to release an album in the future.

Furthermore, Jimmy, who is also the director of the movie, managed to get his father, veteran actor Sammo Hung to act in his movie.

When asked if he was confident with the box office sales, Jimmy laughed, "I'm happy as long as it doesn't flop. I hope it'll break a million dollars."

Jimmy also admitted that his father did not give him pressure and is very grateful that Sammo gave him space to express himself.
