Hong Kong singer-actor Edison Chen, the focus of the celebrity nude photo controversy, will come back to the spotlight to cooperate with Hong Kong actress Hsu Chi in shooting a romance movie invested by an American independent film studio.

The agent companies of the two stars have confirmed the news, and said the investor doesn't care about Edison's photo incident, and thought his privacy has little connection with his acting career. So they contacted Edison in the first place, for they thought he is the most suitable actor to visualize the character described in the script.

The agent company also disclosed that Chen is going to start shooting this summer. Meanwhile, there are also some other western film producers who have expressed their wishes to cooperate with Edison.

The film, which will be shot in both Singapore and Chicago, tells the story of a Chinese student (to be played by Edison) who studied in the States. He has been appointed to work in Singapore, where he starts a romantic story with a girl played by Hsu Chi.

After publicly resigning from the Hong Kong showbiz circle, the scandal-plagued pop star Edison Chen went to the United States for performing and business opportunities.

The twenty-seven-year-old Chen shot to fame in late 1990s, and has released a dozen albums and has appeared in popular films such as "Infernal Affairs" and "Initial D."
