Chapter 460: Can You?
Translator: Henyee Translations Editor: Henyee Translations
On this day, when Lu Zhen was training in the martial arts class, she suddenly received a message from Director Wei Ji.
Wei Ji was a very direct person. He asked Lu Zhen, “Do you have a free schedule next year?”
Lu Zhen wiped the sweat off her forehead with a towel and paused. Could it be that Director Wei Ji wanted to film with her? But why didn’t Wei Ji talk to her company or her manager? After all, she was Jia Le t s artist and had to listen to the company’s arrangements when it came to important matters.
Lu Zhen hesitated for a moment before answering, “l have.”
Since Wei Ji had come to ask her first, she had to give him a clear answer. Lu Zhen thought of how much Ye Xuan valued Wei Ji and sat up straighter.
A few seconds later, Wei Ji sent another message. “Can you accept acting as a man?”
Lu Zhen was stunned. What?! She suppressed her confusion and asked, “A man?”
Lu Zhen’s reaction was within Wei Ji t s expectations, but he did not seem to be good at explaining things to others. He only asked again in a stiff tone, “Can you do it?”
Lu Zhen did not know how to answer for a moment. Director Wei Ji did not tell her what role she’s going to act, nor did he show her the script. He asked her if she could play a male role. Wasn’t this too casual?
Although she was not confident, after hesitating for a few seconds, she still replied, “l can.”
Since Wei Ji dared to look for her, why wouldn’t she dare to agree? Although Lu Zhen had never acted in a male role, she had already acted in a robot. It shouldn’t be a problem for her to act in a male role, right?
During the filming of Robot, Lu Zhen had established a sense of trust in Wei Ji. She did not doubt Wei Ji!s strength.
Lu Zhen felt that Wei Ji t s style of doing things was very similar to that of a gambler. When he was filming a movie, he would not consider too many external factors and would only focus all his attention on his work.
Wei JVs work also has an adventurous feel to it due to his extreme ego. It was like walking on a tightrope high in the sky. If he succeeded, he would win countless applause and cheers. If he failed, it would be an irreversible ending.
Hearing Lu Zhen’s answer, Wei Ji nodded and said, “Alright, I’ll talk to your company. After the variety show ends, I’ll send you the script.”
For a moment, Lu Zhen wondered if Wei Ji was a little too confident. How did he know that her company would definitely agree to let her film his movie?
After returning home, Lu Zhen called Ye Xuan and told her about Wei Ji looking for her.
Hearing that Wei Ji wanted Lu Zhen to play a male role, Ye Xuan was also a little surprised, but she quickly calmed down. “That person is not much different from a lunatic. It’s not strange for him to have such thoughts. Forget it, let’s take a gamble.”
With that, Ye Xuan tapped her fingers on the table and a smile appeared on her lips. “However, this guy is also a smart person. He saw that you took the initiative to go to his production team to act in ‘Robot’ and guessed my and the company’s attitude towards him, so he directly looked for you to discuss the collaboration. As long as you’re willing to act, the company and I have no reason to disagree.”
Only then did Lu Zhen understand. It turned out that Wei Ji knew everything. It wasn’t that he didn’t understand the ways of the world, nor was it that he didn’t have EQ. He just couldn’t be bothered to focus on unimportant things, so he looked strange and out of place.
“l wonder what kind of movie he’s going to film this time. This movie should be the key to whether he can make a comeback. I hope he won’t disappoint me.” Ye Xuan’s eyes were bright, and her pupils seemed to be burning with flames.
In the past few years, there were fewer and fewer outstanding movie scripts. If Lu Zhen could produce another movie after Beauty, then she had a firm foothold in the film industry. It would be even more perfect if she could get an award.
If she wanted to change from a popular celebrity to a capable actress who could leave a name in the history of domestic movies, there was still a long way to go. Ye Xuan could only patiently accompany Lu Zhen step by step.
In fact, if Guan Yun had not snatched the role of Samir’s movie, Lu Zhen’s path to the peak would have been much smoother and easier.
Ye Xuan came back to her senses and asked Lu Zhen, “Is the fourth episode about to start recording? Didn’t the production team tell you the segment and process?”
Lu Zhen shook her head. “No.”
Ye Xuan could not help but sigh. “Other variety shows set up a bunch of fake scripts. It’s like filming a television drama. This show is good. It doesn’t even tell the guests the program process. It’s really not afraid of accidents..”
