Hong Kong Film Directors' Guild - Directors - Rico CHU
朱德安 | CHU Rico

I’ve been living on the other side of the world, in Canada, as a husband and father ever since I left Hong Kong. For the sake of my family and children, I had chosen to move to a different part of the world in the hopes of providing them with a better environment to grow up. However, I must stress that during all these years, I have not forgotten about the movie industry in HK. HK is really the place where my passion anchors. Thanks to the almighty internet, I am able to keep in touch with the film industry in HK. I have not given up my dream of and interest in the film making. I was just on the other side of the Pacific, praying for the HK film industry and all of you. Time flies and I think it is time for me to open a new page in my life and career and pursue my dream again. I am ready to devote my time and life for the film industry again. I am looking forward to rejoining you guys once again.


Rico Chu Tak-on was born in Hong Kong in 1956 and joined the film industry in the early 1980s as an actor. Because of his long hair and beard, he was often cast as villains. His better known roles include the Triad boss in Law With Two Phases (1984), the Japanese ghost in The Haunted Copshop II (1988) and the Thai drug kingpin in My Hero (1990). In addition to acting, he also worked as assistant director, line producer and screenwriter.

He wrote the screenplays to The Criminal Hunter (1988) and My Hero II (1993), among others, and directed Stephen Chow in Fist of Fury 1991 and its sequel, Fist of Fury 1991 II (1992). In addition, he served on the executive committee of the Hong Kong Director’s Guild between 1996 and 1998. In the late 1990s, he immigrated to Canada with his family.
