THR: Bieber Entertainment Enterprises Purchases Screen Rights to ‘Chinese General’

Two competing Two-Gun Cohen films in the works.

Last month, director Doug Liman and producers Rob Reiner and Alan Greisman joined forces with Beijing Galloping Horse Film & TV Production to produce a competing drama about Two-Gun Cohen

FBA: Second project shoots at Two Gun Cohen

“The Chinese General tells the dramatic and exciting story of how Morris Cohen’s career became interwoven in the lives of the most important players in the formation of modern-day China,” said Bieber and Duband. Cohen was also a close, trusted friend and protector of Sun’s wife Soong Ching Ling.

Variety: The Dragon Pearl review

An admirable attempt to blend Western blockbuster tropes with Chinese motifs, “The Dragon Pearl” lacks fire but is respectful enough not to camp it up despite its broad tone.

Let us begin with Vonnie Lui’s breasts: they are impressively huge, in 3D, and honoured with the kind of extreme close-up shot that was never offered the face of the semi-famous model/actress.

As hard as this might be to believe, sex is often best experienced in person. That, however, isn’t exactly stopping any Hongkonger from downloading Japanese porn, at will.

Hayama was shocked when he checked out 1991’s Sex and Zen as part of his professional due diligence.

After I watched the DVD, I thought to myself: I must say no [to the offer]!” he says, alternating between a boyish grin and embarrassed chuckle. “This is not a love story at all!” He exclaims. “This is totally a porno!”

CNNGo: Hiro Hayama: ‘I should have asked for more money’

You have to shave first, but the hair grows back within two days and it still hurts when you pull the tape off. In the end I just pulled the hairs out. It was so painful.

THR: No ‘Sex’ for Imax, but ‘3D Zen’ Film Eyes Sequel

The producers were eager to launch the 3D romp in Imax theatres when the film began production, but after a long negotiation, they found that it was not meant to be. “Imax has rejected our film because of the subject matter and content,” Shiu Jr. said, “but for our premiere in Taiwan, we will show the film in an Imax 3D theatre using their 3D screening equipment.”

“We are very curious,” she said. “It is the first time to see an X-rated film in the cinema. It should be very interesting.”

The Warring States is no longer The Warring States (Sina)

The article from Chengdu notes: 1. Director Jin Chen, on the subversion of the classic Sun Bin (Sun Honglei), he says that there are only 180 words in the history book about Sun Bin, the rest is only speculation. Sun Bin was not a perfect person. Jin Chen decided that Sun Bin in real life was a silly character. 2. Sun Honglei’s portrayal has been accused of imitation Ge You in Let the Bullets Fly. Thus, his previous remarks about admitting to his poor performance. Sun Honglei has been suffering from kidney stones during the publicity tour for the film. 3. Francis Ng was asked why all his ‘northern’ i.e., mainland, films are lousy. Ng countered, did you think Wind Blast was bad? Maybe the choice of directors and cast did not meet the audience expectations. He only admits a horror movie was really bad. He dares not make anymore horror films. 4. 22 year-old Jing Tian’s prominence has viewers saying the film should be called “Jing Tian and The Story of Three Men”. It is suggested that her boyfriend, the son of a wealthy coal mine owner in Shanxi, has pressured the producers to highlight the actress. Jing Tian admitted as much saying she was unaware of it and apologized to the three male leads. However, she cleverly noted that actor Yu Shaoqun was an unknown among stars in Mei Lanfang/Forever Enthralled.

In addition, yesterday, rumours said that Sun Honglei and Francis Ng were given a 12 and 6 million yuan acting fee, respectively, by the boyfriend. (Sina)
