Shao Xiaoshan - spy?

The Banquet

31 year-old Chinese actress Shao Xiaoshan posted on her microblog that she was forced to act as a “honey trap” for military intelligence since she was 17 years old. She seduced Western embassy officials, including the son of the French ambassador to China in 2007, to gather information. Shao claimed that she no longer wanted to do evil things, authorities no longer paid the cost of living and would not let her emigrate. She risked her life and was not exaggerating. The post was immediately removed and her agent said that it was a result of too much drinking.

Shao acted as Zhang Ziyi’s nude body double in Feng Xiaogang’s The Banquet. But, afterwards, her American boyfriend abandoned her. (ifeng)(Sina)

Mysterious Island - Nothing to Fear but Fear Itself

There’s a paradox about Chinese horror films. A genre subject to rigorous censorship pertaining to the supernatural, what’s released is rarely good and no big director ever picks the genre. At the same time, what does succeed are often shoestring affairs, meaning great returns on little investment.

At a Mei Ah press conference in Beijing, it was announced that Yang Mi would be featured in four upcoming projects: Chinese Princess Turandot, Windseeker, Butterfly Cemetery and Great Wudang. Mei Ah will invest $300M in the four films.Windseeker will be directed by Alan Mak and Felix Chong and star Tony Leung Chiu-Wai.

China uses whistles, water, police on protests

Near Shanghai’s People’s Square, uniformed police blew whistles nonstop and shouted at people to keep moving, though about 200 people — a combination of onlookers and quiet sympathizers who formed a larger crowd than a week ago — braved the shrill noise. In Beijing, trucks normally used to water the streets drove repeatedly up the busy commercial shopping district spraying water and keeping crowds pressed to the edges.  China’s jasmine revolution: police but no protesters line streets of Beijing (GuardianUK)
