Shu Qi in LA, Milan, Taiwan, New/Old Project Launched [Roast Pork Sliced From A Rusty Cleaver] (飲水思源)

Shu Qi was in LA last weekend for a World Heart Day charity dinner. Before that, she was in Milan for the 2013 Spring Jimmy Choo rollout.

Also, Shu Qi and Chang Chen have started a new/old (in development since 2005) martial arts film project helmed by Hou Hsiao-Hsien. The official launch ceremony for "The Assassins" (yes, another one!) was held in Taiwan on Sept. 25. Besides Shu Qi and Chang Chen, Nikki Hsieh Hsin-ying and Chang Shao-huai have been announced as cast members. The film will require Shu Qi to learn marital arts as well as flying by wire for the story set during the Tang Dynasty..

Seafood dinner!

"Habit" is the worst partner ... (???)
Perhaps a response to refute the latest rumour having Shu Qi reuniting with ex-bf Leon Lai?

Upcoming cover for October issue

Set in the Tang Dynasty, the story revolves about a young woman who is secretly trained by a Taoist nun to become a ruthless assassin but is then asked to kill her lover.

I'm really curious to see Hou's take on the wuxia genre. It doesn't hurt that Shu Qi is playing the lead. ;)

Shu Qi has always done well under HHH's direction.

The press is playing up the fact that Shu Qi gets to make up for missing out on Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
