Kwan Shu-ming (關樹明), producer behind the TVB dramas My Unfair Lady <不懂撒嬌的女人> and Another Era <再創世紀>, has confirmed to reporters that he is currently working on a continuation of the Detective Investigation Files <刑事偵緝檔案> series.
Rumors of a fifth installment of Detective Investigation Files, also known as DIF, started swirling earlier this week when a netizen leaked on a public discussion forum that TVB has already started pre-production work for the police procedural series. It was rumored that TVB was looking to cast Kara Wai (惠英紅), Philip Keung (姜皓文), Vincent Wong (王浩信), Benjamin Yuen (袁偉豪), Mandy Wong (黃智雯), and Owen Cheung (張振朗) for the series. Another rumor claimed that TVB has already cast Ruco Chan (陳展鵬) and Elaine Yiu (姚子羚) in lead roles.
Reporters reached out to Owen to ask for a confirmation, but the Legal Mavericks <踩過界> star said that “he shouldn’t be” in the series, due to the high possibility of a schedule clash.
Producer Kwan Shu-ming then confirmed the rumor that a DIF V is in the works, but it is currently in a very early stage of the process. “Thank you all for the concerns of our team,” he said. “It is true that we are working on one, but you never know what’s going to happen tomorrow. We will make a formal announcement when everything is confirmed.”
The first season of DIF debuted in March 1995 and starred Michael Tao (陶大宇), Kenix Kwok (郭可盈), Joey Leung (梁榮忠), and Louisa So (蘇玉華). It spawned two sequels. The fourth installment, released in March 1999, was a reboot that starred Louis Koo (古天樂), Sunny Chan (陳錦鴻), Jessica Hsuan (宣萱), and Charmaine Sheh (佘詩曼). Louis and Jessica respectively won TV King and Queen for their performances.
