Iconic Hong Kong action director Ringo Lam has brought his latest effort, 'Sky on Fire'--- or 'Chong Tian Huo' in Chinese --- to Beijing.

At the press conference, he described the all-star cast in this action thriller using China's five elements philosophy, of Metal, Water, Wood, Fire and Earth.

Here, he talks about the role taken on by actress Zhang Jingchu.

"Her personality traits may be associated with water. It's hard to catch her. She lost control and even killed her husband."

The 36-year-old actress plays a research scientist in 'Sky on Fire,' while Hong Kong actor Daniel Wu co-stars with her as a security agent.

Wu's character is tasked with protecting the scientist who has created a drug that can extend one's life.

The action thriller is the latest installment of Ringo Lam's 'On Fire' franchise, as a follow-up to 'City on Fire,' 'Prison on Fire' and 'School on Fire' which all came out in the late 80s.

The film is set for release on November 25.
