Everything about the talented Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi
Welcome to Zhang Ziyi Infos, your best source for the Chinese actress since 2007. Zhang Ziyi is a famous actress known for her roles in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Memoirs of a Geisha, The Grandmaster and so many other great films. Zhang Ziyi recently directed the short film Poem in the anthology film My Country, My Parents. Read her full biographyhere.
A new article (and in English) about Sophie’s Revenge 2.
“After a series of preparations, the new film is planning to kick off at the end of June or the beginning of July,” Zhang said. “The new film is tentatively titled ‘Sophie’s Revenge 2,’ but the plot is more creative than the first one.”
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.
Huge surprise! 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 schedule 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, Singapore 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.
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.
