A lot of rumors and speculation having been circulating online about the cast, but only Ziyi, Lei Jiayin, Li Xian and Jackson Yee have been seen of the set so far. Given that the cast list is very long and not completed yet, they didn’t make anything official so far. More rumored cast members include Yang Mi, Zhao Liying, Shen Teng, Liu Xiaoqing, Joan Chen, Huang Xiaoming, Zhu Yawen, Tong Dawei, Liu Ye and many more.

Ziyi and Wang Feng Divorce

Wang Feng and Ziyi simultaneously announced their divorce on Weibo today.

南華早報 (South China Morning Post), the Hong Kong-based newspaper, published an article in English about it.

Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi has announced she is splitting with her husband of eight years, musician Wang Feng, with whom she has two children. On October 23, Zhang and Wang posted the same message on Weibo, China’s answer to Twitter: “Having experienced eight years of marriage together, and after extensive consideration and discussion, we have decided to get a divorce.”The statement goes on to say that no blame is attached to either party and their separation does not mean that either failed or betrayed the other; and nor will it affect their love for their children. This is a decision between two adults. We hope to gain your understanding and support,” it adds.

Although Zhang and Wang have decided to divorce, they write in the shared statement that they will continue to co-parent their eight-year-old daughter and three-year-old son “as a family unit”.

Their statement on Weibo adds that neither of them will say anything more about their divorce.
