This came out of nowhere! Ronnie Yu has been out of the news for awhile now.

Surprised to Zhang Ziyi on anyone's cast these days, too.

How much you want to bet that that cast list changes a bit if the film ever gets made?

Why is K-20 just now getting a Mainland release? I got the DVD in HMV in HK at Christmas and it had already been out long enough to get marked down a bit.

Give the man a prize! Agents, reps, etc are already backpedaling. Gong Li is the only solid lock at the moment it seems. :)

Tantalizing, huh?
