CF: Three Megastars to Star in "Dangerous Liaisons"
Set in 1930's Shanghai, the story revolves around the three-way relationship between Mo Jieyu (Cecilia Cheung), Xie Yifan (Dong-gun Jang) and Du Yufen (Zhang Ziyi).

The movie revolves around an autistic girl, Xiao Mei, who wants to escape from her miserable life. In order to do this, she escapes into her own idyllic fantasy world, but eventually she must face reality. Xu Jiao and Rene Liu play mother and daughter.

Mr Yam said with his more than 20 years of participation in the Hong Kong film industry, he has a deep feeling of both the vitality and enchantment of Hong Kong cinema. The city's outstanding and wonderful films are not only timeless but are the accomplishments of many dedicated filmmakers.

Shanghai roll out of "1911". Of course, the media focused on Jackie Chan's report of a deleted sexy scene with Li Bingbing. Jaycee Chan, when asked, said that he did not know about it but, if true, he hoped that an extended DVD edition might contain it. Director Zhang Li explained that the scene(s) were deleted as the film was a serious, historical subject and did not fit. [So, naturally, it begs the question, why was it filmed in the first place? Oh, Jackie!] Later, the always stingy with praise Jackie Chan rated his son's performance as only 20/100. When asked by reporters whether someday Jaycee might be successful and copy the father-son duo Patrick Tse and Nicholas Tse, Jackie immediately dismissed it and said never in this lifetime.

The actress confessed that she still longs for love and plans to have another child with her new love
Cecilia admitted that she looked forward to her next relationship, and hoped that she would be able to have another child, giving Lucas and Quintus half-siblings.
According to recent reports from the Hong Kong media, Gillian had taken a liking to Taiwanese singer Owodog -- member of pop quartet Lollipop F -- supposedly because he resembled her former lover Edison Chen. There were also rumours that Gillian was actively courting the singer.

"For me, exceeding the time limit is just an excuse to shut down the TV program, and there would have been other excuses even if the TV station did not make the shows that long," said Jin Yong, a researcher at the Communication University of China.
Hunan Satellite Television, which produces Super Girl, has agreed to follow the broadcast regulator's ruling to remove the show and replace it with public service programming, the newspaper quoted deputy editor-in-chief Li Hao as saying.

Hi Dennis --

Thanks for calling attention to the photos of (and article(s) about) Brigitte Lin. I love that she's looking so happy in them.

BTW, in the Sina piece you linked to, can you ID who's the focus of the photo?

(E.g., I take it's someone famous but I'm very bad at recognizing faces, so need help doing so!)

You're very welcome! Brigitte seems very lively, huh?

BTW, in the Sina piece you linked to, can you ID who's the focus of the photo?

According to the caption, he is Li Yugang. Looking him up, he is a National Class One Performer, in the Chinese Opera and Dance Theatre. Seems he specializes in women's roles. TV credits include Dream of Red Mansions.

Why is Jackie Chan such a jerk to Jaycee? Just sayin'

dleedlee said...

Yeah, it's really sad to see. I guess Jackie is trying too hard to make sure Jaycee doesn't ride on his coattails in the biz. And I can't remember, but didn't Jackie marry Joan Lin only after she got pregnant? (Google: yep) So, there might be some sort of additional resentment.
