NIGHT BANQUET: FEAST OF DETAILS

Feng Xiaogang's Chinese HAMLET, NIGHT BANQUET, is looking better and better, with music by Tan Dun and action by Yuen Wo-ping. Here's an update on the cast:

Zhang Ziyi = Gertrude, she's apparently going to be a bit dreamy in this movie, but will be the lead

Daniel Wu = Hamlet, he'll be doing a lot of kung fu

Ge You = Claudius, the Emperor role, he's been in almost all of Feng Xiaogang's movies

Huang Xiaoming = Laertes

Ma Jingwu = Polonius

Zhou Xun = Ophelia, she's apparently a dancing queen in Peter Chan's PERHAPS LOVE and will be hoofing up a storm in THE NIGHT BANQUET.
