The release of Herman Yau’s The Woman Knight of Mirror Lake has been delayed again due to objections by Qiu Jin’s descendants over her portrayal. Originally scheduled for an August release, then postponed to Sept. 19, it is now set for an Oct. 13 release. Qiu Jin’s descendants have been invited to the premiere in Hangzhou in hopes of smoothing over relations and eliminating misunderstandings.

Produced by Manfred Wong, the horror film’s cast includes Kara Hui, Monica Mok (Mo Xiaoqi), Ruby Lin and Daniel Chan (Chen Xiaodong). It looks like it might be a remake of Cheung Ying’s similarly-named 1962 film (which was terrific) about a woman who is murdered by her husband and her true love is framed.
