What an exciting news! Hur Jin-ho’s film “Dangerous Liaisons” will be screened at “La quinzaine des Réalisateurs” (17 May – 27 May) during the Cannes Film Festival.
Among the various sections at the Cannes Film Festival, the Directors’ Fortnight is distinguished by its independent-mindedness, its non-competitive nature and its concern to cater to non-professional Cannes audiences, which can buy a subscription for the entire Fortnight program or purchase tickets for individual screenings.
I invite you to take a look at the official page of the Directors’ Fortnight.
Let’s hope that our favourite actress will spend some time in France during the festival! Rendez-vous in May.
Zhang Ziyi was gorgeous on the red carpet of the 2nd Beijing International Film Festival… Have a look!
Edit: Enjoy many mores pictures of the red carpet and the opening ceremony with Andy Lau!
The 2nd Beijing International Film Festival will be held from Monday, 23th April to Saturday, 28th April 2012. Ziyi will shine on the red carpet again…
Festival organizers say they will be screening more than 260 films from across the globe over the course of the six-day event while hosting a film market that aims to bridge the gap between China and the international film community. Among the local stars set to grace the red carpet are directors Feng Xiaogang and John Woo and stars Tang Wei, Fan Bingbing, Zhang Ziyi and Jackie Chan.

It’s a great disappointment for all of us, Deadline revealed 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.
Wong Kar Wai’s Grandmasters is rumoured to be screened at the next Cannes International Film Festival.
Ziyi has just finished the shooting of a movie called ”Wu Wen Xi Dong” directed by Li Fangfang. The film is a reflection of the Tsinghua University’s spirit. The university is also involved in the project. Ziyi is the leading actress alongside Huang Xiaoming (The Banquet). The film will be released at the end of the year in China. Huge thanks to Zhishui for his precious help. Take a look at the first pictures of the film.
In March, the actress will start the shooting of John Woo’s upcoming film.
Korea Herald is reporting that (via The Playlist) the director’s next film will be a wartime romance project, now titled ‘Love And Let Love.’
The film, originally titled ‘1949’, has been in the works for years now, but had seemed to fall apart a few years back, when issues arose with the film’s script and its rights. The project will star Song Hye-Ko and ‘1949’ lead Zhang Ziyi, as well as Chang Chen.
‘Love’ will follow the story of a woman in the wake of WWII, and her life during the Chinese Civil War.
Dangerous Liaisons was at the Berlin Film Festival’s film market. Two posters and one new still have been released. Take a look!
