MARCHING INTO PRODUCTION

Two much-anticipated flicks are heading into production this month. First up is Jiang Wen (the actor and director of DEVILS ON THE DOORSTEP, and the star of THE MISSING GUN and RED SORGHUM) and his new directorial project: WHERE THE SUN RISES. Starring Jaycee Chan, Anthony Wong and Zhou Yu it's basically a Chinese version of THE CANTERBURY TALES and will shoot in Yunnan province (click here for set photos).

Second up is Wilson Yip's DRAGON TIGER GATE which the Kung Fu Cult Cinema site says started preproduction work and may even be moving into production soon. Wilson Yip's SHA PO LANG is the toast of the internet these days, and he's even been talking to Donnie Yen about starring in this adaptation of a 1970's Hong Kong comic (Nic Tse is also up for a part, if not the lead).
