CF: ”Dear Enemies” Wandering on the Street

The romance movie “Dear Enemy”, dedicated to this year’s Christmas, is due to hit the national screens on December 23. A batch of new still photos was released today in the run up of its release. Lead actress and director of the movie Xu Jinglei and lead actor Stanley Huang were featured in the pictures wearing bathrobes and standing on the street.

In “Strawberry Cliff,” a supernatural thriller about a young woman who can foresee people’s deaths, director Chris Chow was able to break from formulas and plot conventions that he typically sticks to in his screenwriting work.

It also stars Eason Chan, one of Hong Kong’s most popular actors, as a Hong Kong bartender who shares a soul with both an American man and a French woman. For Mr. Chan, best known for Cantopop ballads and comedic roles, it’s a both a weightier-than-usual part and his first in English.

Mr. Chow currently is working on screenplays for a few films, including one with director John Woo. “Flying Tigers,” which Mr. Woo says he plans to begin shooting next year, is about the group of American combat pilots who fought with the Chinese military against the Japanese during World War II.

At the 24th Tokyo International Film Festival, which took place from October 20-30, the director revealed that the film would be released on the mainland, and beared this in mind during the filming process. “I’ve prepared backup materials for the sensitive content that may be disapproved by the Film Board,” he said in an interview. So, there is no need for movie fans to worry about losing the original flavor when watching Ko’s latest creation on mainland cinema screens.

The perfect kung fu duo—Tsui Hark and Jet Li—pose for a photo shoot for “GQ” magazine to promote their new wuxia martial arts flick “Flying Swords of the Dragon Gate 3D” slated for release on December 16.

CF: Leni Lan Yan Covers the For Him Magazine

Many fans, however, were less than thrilled with a crude joke actor Eric Tsang made about the film You Are the Apple of My Eye. Tsang cohosted the ceremony with his daughter, Mando-pop singer and actress Bowie Tsang.

The Chinese title of the sweet-natured comedy, which is about a group of high school friends engaged in a romantic rivalry, literally translates as “Those years, we chased the same girl.” The film has set box office records in Taiwan, Singapore and Hong Kong and a single off its soundtrack, Those Years (那些年), has become a major hit.

The movie is so influential, Tsang declared during the ceremony, that Hong Kong director Wong Jing, a prolific director with infamously crass sensibilities, wants to make his own version. The title? “Those years, when we raped the same girl”.

“That sounds a little scary,” Bowie Tsang responded to her father as their celebrity audience giggled nervously.

Lin Chi-ling probably wishes the media had some boundaries, too. The supermodel celebrated her 37th birthday last week, which led to yet another round of tabloid speculation about when she will finally find a husband…Gossip reporters were horrified by the idea of Taiwan’s top model becoming a 40-year-old spinster. “I feel like everyone asks me the same question every year,” said Lin with a giant smile plastered across her face. “I never have a different answer. It makes me feel depressed.”

Baby, baby, baby…

Soon after Andy Lau’s admission that he is going to be a father, fellow “Heavenly King” Leon Lai hinted that he may well be next, during the premiere of his new film “White Vengeance” on Tuesday, reported Hong Kong media.

Benny Chan recently shared a piece of happy news amidst all the negativity he’s been getting due to his improper behaviour towards 19-year-old actress Rose Chan.

Previously, a tabloid claimed that Benny paid Rose HK$1 million as a form of compensation. Commenting on the report, the actor said, “Today’s my two queens’ birthday. Let’s not talk about that.” (Sina)

Chan’s wife, Lisa Jiang, a Chinese former-model, was due to give birth in mid-December but delivered her daughter earlier via Cesarean section because the baby’s umbilical cord was coiled around its neck.

“Because this day is my wife Lisa Jiang’s 26th birthday and is also the day my daughter is born, it is especially memorable,” Chan told reporters.

Variety: Shattered review

A microcosm of China past and present flows through Xu Tong’s intimate docu “Shattered,” in which the maverick indie filmmaker continues to refine his techniques and concerns shown in his previous “Wheat Harvest” and “Fortune Teller.”

CRI: Actress Zhao Wei to Make Directorial Debut

The film, provisionally entitled “To Our Youth That Is Fading Away”, will be an adaptation of the novel of the same name. It will tell the tale of a woman’s emotional struggle with two men whom she meets again many years after their on-campus love triangle.

CF: Vicky Zhao’s First Movie Project

Stanley Kwan will produce the movie. The film’s screenplay will be written by Li Qiang, whose 2005 film “Peacock” picked up a Silver Berlin Bear Award.

Based on the popular novel “To Our Youth that will Fade Away,” the story revolves around a girl named Zheng Wei, who becomes torn between two men; she is forced to make a decision to find her Mr. Right.

THR: Hong Kong Comedian Stephen Chow Voices Support in Chief Executive Election

‘Shaolin Soccer’ star sticks up for friend Henry Tang Ying-yen, one of two candidates for Hong Kong’s highest office.

The comic mastermind also had his own words of wisdom on the possible negative impact on public support for Tang after Tang was discovered to have engaged in extramarital liaisons.

Chow deadpanned, “We’re trying to elect a chief executive here, not to choose a boyfriend.” [Herman Cain might want to borrow this line.]

Chow’s unopposed election to one of 15 seats for the performing arts subsector on the next Hong Kong chief executive election committee came at the last minute on the day before the application closed, after original candidate, 1990s “Heavenly King” of the Hong Kong pop music scene and actor Leon Lai (Forever Enthralled), was found to be ineligible.

Lai’s disqualification to run as the representative of the election committee for the performing arts subsector had made a mockery of the whole election process of the next chief executive, which will be selected by a 1200-member committee – the singer-actor was not eligible as he was not even a registered voter.

After a slump of over a decade, Taiwan’s home- grown films are not only sweeping box offices at home but also winning awards and hit status overseas, thanks to a new cohort of filmmakers.

Director Chen Kaige is shooting his realistic Micro film “Search” in Ningbo of Zhejiang Province. Its scheduled release is in May of 2012. Chen will make three micro films before promoting them on the Internet.

On the sidelines of the event, an exhibition was also launched to showcase the film’s production process. The exhibition consists of the pictures of the scenes, character modeling, and victims shot by an American journalist with Time magazine in 1942.

Or Tang Wei?

The new Bond film has been casting for a Chinese actress and front runners are Tang Wei and Josie Ho, according to this article. Li Bingbing, Fan Bingbing and Shu Qi are also said to be “finalists” being considered. The production company has been quietly interviewing candidates in Mainland China and Hong Kong last month. The role calls for sexy, bad and mysterious. Fan Bingbing and Li Bingbing are well known domestically in China but Fan’s English is not strong and Li’s is not as strong as Tang Wei and Josie Ho. Shu Qi has sexy but in “The Transporter” she did not have much dialogue. Tang Wei is considered the likely choice due to both her English fluency and notoriety from “Lust, Caution”. Josie Ho has the rebel image and fashion style, also, she recently worked on Steven Soderbergh’s “Contagion”. The film, directed by Sam Mendes, begins shooting next month so a final announcement is expected shortly. (Sina) Elsewhere, it’s being reported that the official Bond girl is French actress Berenice Marlohe
