CF: "The Tale of Two Cities" to be Released
Directed by the young Chinese director Pan Anzi, and starring Richie Ren, Teng Ge'er, Yvonne Yung and Xiong Naijing, the film "The Tale of Two Cities" is set to hit cinema screens during the Spring Festival of 2012...Set in the turbulent days of the Republic of China, the film tells the tale of grassroots outlaws and rivals.

The film is set in the thirties, in old Shanghai, and documents the filming of a horror movie in an old mansion. As part of the storyline, the lead actress of the movie being filmed, which is set in the ancient times, dies uncannily. A policewoman, played by Han Yifei, is sent to apply for the role of lead actress, lurking among the cast to investigate the case. However, actors and actresses start to die one after another, plunging everyone into a terrible dilemma.

Frozen for two years, reporters last night spotted an entry on China Film Digital Development's web site a table of distribution dates, including one for an entry for Nov.29 listed only as 'WRQ', i.e., Wuren Qu/No Man's Land. The entry was later deleted. When reporters questioned the company, a spokesman denied it. But reporters claimed to have a screen capture showing it. The spokesman said he would investigate and see if it was a staff member's entry error. (Sina)

Regarding Li Tao, I doubt if I will ever get used to seeing an actress on the red carpet at a film festival or at a gala opening night wearing Lucite stripper platform heels.
