CHEN KAIGE'S NEW MOVIE

Chen Kaige has tried to make every kind of movie since the major international success of FAREWELL, MY CONCUBINE but he's been greeted with poor box office, critical derision, public parody, and accusations of eco-insensitivity at every turn. So, finally, he's going back to a happy place and his next flick will be a bio-pic of Cantonese Opera star, Mei Lan-fang. Shooting mostly on a set, production will begin in May. Leon Lai and Leehom Wong are rumored to be up for the part of Mei.

Mei Lanfang was a PEKING opera star. Big regional difference from Cantonese opera.
