Just about a year ago, one Edison Chen got caught with his pants down - literally. Pictures he had taken over the past few years in intimate poses with female celebrities were posted on the Internet.Next, it was off to Europe for The Green Butchers (2003) Danish film stars Mads Mikkelsen, Nikolaj Lie Kaas, and Line Kruse, written and directed by Anders Thomas Jensen. It is a black comedy featuring two butchers, Svend "Sweat" and Bjarne, who start their own shop to get away from their arrogant boss. Cannibalism is soon introduced to the plot, and further complications arise due to the reappearance of Bjarne's mentally retarded twin brother Eigil. Svend reminds me of Christopher Walken. A Danish Christopher Walken.
The 28-year old Chen was to have appeared over several days in a Vancouver courtroom but the hearing ended Tuesday after a single day. Prosecutors and defense lawyers, who had traveled to Vancouver for the hearing in B.C. Supreme Court because Chen refused to return to Hong Kong, finished their questions earlier then expected.
Chen testified against computer techn Ho Chun Sze, charged with copying and uplaoding the photos from the movie star's computer after it was brought in for servicing.
Gillian Chung of Hong Kong pop group, Twins, says she'll press on with plans to make a comeback despite Chen'naming her at the Canadian hearing as one of the four women he took snapshots of. (Various Sources)
