THE sex scandal that shook the local entertainment scene early this year has seen actor-director Jack Neo stay out of the limelight for the last seven months.

Now, he is ready to return to the big screen in a new movie Homecoming, cross-dressing as the mother of Malaysian actor Niu.

In March, the director's many extra-marital affairs came to light after his then-lover Wendy Chong broke the news to the media. His wife stood by him and even pleaded for forgiveness on his behalf.

When asked about his life after the scandal, Neo declined to comment. He added that it was premature to say if his upcoming movies, Homecoming and The Ghost Bride, would be affected by the scandal.
