Tang Wei, Zhou Xun Join The Founding of a Party

Zhou Xun

Tang Wei and Zhou Xun are the latest names added to the cast of The Founding of a Party. This would mark a full rehabilitation / restoration of Tang Wei. Zhou Xun did not appear in The Founding of a Republic. Also, there is a good possibility that Tang Wei will be cast in Zhang Yimou's 13 Women of Jinling (Nanking).  Earlier, it was rumored, Tang Wei had expressed interest in Lu Chuan's King's Feast but, so far, nothing has come of it. (Xinhua)(Sina)

A press conference was held at Beijing Film Studio with many of the cast members in costume but Tang Wei and Zhou Xun were clearly the highlight of the event. Lu Chuan and Sheng Ding will direct parts of the film besides chief director Huang Jianxin. And unlike last time, the cast will not be working for free but receive basic compnesation and expenses.
