Poster for 13th Shanghai International Film Festival

Jia Zhanke promoting a watch brand.

Jia Zhangke is reportedly courting Maggie Cheung for his Johnnie To-produced martial arts film 'In the Qing Dynasty'. The script is not yet finished so Maggie has not decided yet, but filming is slated for a September start date. (Sina)

Jia Zhangke's documentary 'Shanghai Legends' now called 'I Wish I Knew' is scheduled to be screened at the Cannes Film Festival. The film was originally slated to open at the Shanghai World Expo but work had to stop due to Jia's eye strain. A national release is scheduled for June 20. (Sina), 2

Yen plays general Guan Yu, also known as Yunchang, the famous character from the historical novel "Romance of the Three Kingdoms".

The movie has been lensing around China for six months, and is helmed by Canadian Michael French. The pic has had a number of helmers involved, including Jonathan Lawrence and "Vidocq" director Pitof, and has one month left to go, before starting a year of post-production for a 2011 release, either in the summer or at Christmas.

-- Love the SIFF poster!

-- What's Jia Zhangke doing promoting watches?! I'm curious to see what his martial-arts film will be like.

-- Love Tang Wei's cute outfit! Gordon Chan must be *really* short.

-- Good to see that Zhang Jingchu has made up for her recent HKFA fashion disaster. :)

Hopefully, it was only a temporary lapse!

I was surprised to Jia Zhangke doing a promotion too.
