The Zonbo Media Company recently revealed that film heavyweights Zhang Ziyi (who comes from the mainland), Cecilia Cheung (from Hong Kong) and South Korean actor Jang Dong-gun will join Jin-ho Hur’s new war-romance blockbuster “Dangerous Liaisons.”
Zhang Ziyi, the female lead actress in the film, broke the remuneration record for Chinese female film stars, taking home a 20 million yuan paycheck, according to a report from the entertainment website Mtime.com.
Adapted from the well-known French novel “Les Liaisons dangereuses”, the film was rewritten by Yan Geling, the scriptwriter of Zhang Yimouzi’s imminent “Flowers of the War.”
Set in 1930’s Shanghai, the story revolves around the three-way relationship between Mo Jieyu (Cecilia Cheung), Xie Yifan (Dong-gun Jang) and Du Yufen (Zhang Ziyi).
Reportedly, the shooting will start in October this year.
