Joan Chen to direct new movie
Actress-turned-director Joan Chen is to direct a film called The Lost Daughter of Happiness, based on the latest novel written by her long-time partner Yan Geling.
Yan's bestselling book The Lost Daughter of Happiness depicts the enslaved life of early Chinese settlers in the United States through the love story of a Chinese woman Fusang and an American man.
The actress to play Fusang still remains a mystery. The production company is considering famous actresses Zhang Ziyi and Gong Li because of their international fame.
However, Yan and Chen prefer Hong Kong actress Hsu Chi because she better
reflects the character of Fusang.
