According to sources, Ziyi is set to star and produce the adaptation of Guy Gavriel Kay’s Under Heaven. Guy Gavriel Ray wants Ziyi in the character of Wei Song. Lets see if his “dream casting” come true.

A development agreement has been entered into between author Guy Gavriel Kay and actress Zhang Ziyi and her management company and production partners Mosaic Productions, with respect to Kay’s most recent novel Under Heaven. Zhang Ziyi is attached to star and produce.

Still no director are attached to the project at this point. It may takes some years for the project to develop and Ziyi is till busy with the filming of The Grandmaster this month and the filming of the new movie of John Woo and Sophie’s Revenge 2. Next year will be huge for Ziyi!

We have some more informations about Dangerous Liaisons today…

The original novel indeed was banned. However, the novel doesn’t just cover matters concerning a love. It has more deep meanings. We interpret the novel’s humanism from a new angle. It will be the most ‘clean’ adaptation of the novel ever.
