Yesterday, the cast of John Woo’s upcoming film “The Crossing” attended a press conference during the Cannes Film Festival.
See below a video from the press conference:
Some articles gives some interesting informations about the film…
John stated that “Titanic” was a love story that took place on a ship. But “The Crossing” is a story of fate, as these characters were fleeing from the war-torn China to Keelung, Taiwan.
“The wartime background brought each person a different fate, so if there is any comparison, I would say it is closer to “Gone with the Wind”,” said John.
According to Woo, “The Crossing” is “a love story spanning fifty years of Chinese history.” He was anxious to emphasize that the film is a romance despite the fact that he is best known for directing male-oriented action films. It certainly looked romantic judging by the trailer, with some inimitable Woo set pieces, and strong hints of beloved Chinese themes of separated families, star-crossed love, and the tragedy of war.
In regards to HKFA Best Actress Zhang Ziyi, John said, “I believed that directors who have worked with her like Wong Kar Wai, Ang Lee, and Zhang Yimou would be rather happy because she would exceed expectations and work even harder than the director would ask.”
Asked why she accepted her role in “The Crossing,” Zhang said, “It’s the first time I cried so much reading a script.”
In the evening, the cast was reunited for a party. Some pictures in the gallery. Ziyi was radiant !
Ziyi will lend her voice for animated film ‘Where’s The Dragon?‘. Wang Leehom is also attached to the project.
The story follows a ten-year-old girl who teams up with animals from the Chinese Zodiac to search for a lost dragon and save the world from a treacherous conspiracy. Voice cast also includes Michael Wong, Fish Leong and Maggie Chiang.
The film will be released in late 2014 or early 2015.
