Mainland actress Zhang Ziyi will team up with Hong Kong star Cecilia Cheung and South Korean actor Jang Dong-gun, for her new film, a Chinese adaptation of the French epistolary novel Dangerous Liaisons.
The love triangle has Zhang and Cheung rivaling for Jang's affections, against the backdrop of 1930s Shanghai. China's Zonbo Media, which is building a chain of 50 theaters in South Korea, with the Busan International Film Festival, expects the film, whose shooting began on Sept 26, to have a global release.
South Korean director Heo Jin-ho directs the film, whose script has been written by Yan Geling, an established Chinese writer now living in the United States. Zhang Yimou's new film The Flowers of War is based on one of her novels.
