Thanks to the press conference held in Tsinghua University auditorium, we have some informations about the film.

The shooting took place into the Tsinghua University campus. Some students of the university join the cast during the shooting.
The script of the film has been changed several times during the shooting (even 20 minutes before the shooting) but the plot of the film remains quite mysterious but what we know is that the main subject is the youth. Director Li Fang-Fang was tight-lipped but she revealed that she showed the script to the actors and let them choose their own role. The shooting in Beijing has been completed, the crew will shoot soon to the Yunnan. Shooting will be completed in september.

Zhang Ziyi, Chang Chen, Huang Xiaoming played four harbor dreams of Tsinghua. Zhang Ziyi played a student and seemed to enjoy her “friendly” character and the stress-free shooting.

Finally and thanks to Sina we have a first look of the film showed during the press conference !

It’s a great disappointment for all of us, deadline reveals that Wong Kar Wai is still shooting his film…

I can confirm that Wong Kar-Wai’s The Grandmasters will not be ready in time despite longtime hunches to the contrary. Vincent Maraval of Wild Bunch, which is handling the film internationally, tells me not only will it not be ready for Cannes, it won’t be ready for Venice or Toronto either as Wong will still be shooting even during Cannes.

Huge surpise ! The news is spreading throughout the chinese web, Zhang Ziyi is involved in a new cinematographic project… Sophie’s Revenge 2. Ziyi is still the main character of the film, she will produce the film and more surprising, she will direct a part of the movie. The story is not what happen after we left Sophie in 2009 but a new story. Yao Chen and Ruby Lin (Sophie’s best friends) will be also be part of the movie. Famous actors from Hong Kong and Taiwan will join the cast. Ziyi also hopes to reunite the previous cast but shedule issues will probably compromise the reunion.

We don’t know yet the name of the director but it looks like he or she is an international director. The shooting will takes place in Hong Kong, Singapor and other places. Shooting is due to begin in june and the film will be released at the end of the year!

And about “The Grandmasters” Ziyi will be in Shenyang at the end of the month to finish the shooting of Wong Kar Wai’s next film.
