If it seems that German-Chinese model Ankie Beilke hasn't been on the scene lately, it's because she (finally) landed a movie role. The daughter of filmmaker Ankie Lau Heung-ping is about to appear in a children-oriented adventure-comedy called Wickie & Die Starken Manner (Wickie & The Strong Man). The Euro30 million (HK$329 million) production was shot late last year. Beilke's role is a girl named Lee Fu who is rescued by pirates and it is apparently the female lead - among a group of goofy-looking male Vikings and a child. There's a trailer of the film on YouTube. Given the cheapie effects and slapstick comedy, don't hold your breath on it making it to Hong Kong cinemas. It comes out in Germany on September 9.
