Zhang Ziyi, Wang Leehom in "My Lucky Star"

Variety: Ziyi Zhang’s ‘My Lucky Star’ Set For North American Release
China Lion has acquired North American rights to Ziyi Zhang’s “My Lucky Star” and will release the Chinese-language comedy Sept. 20 in North America day-and-date with Mainland China.

The film is set for a limited release in the U.S. and Canada in metro areas, including Boston, Chicago, Honolulu, Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto, Vancouver and the Washington, D.C., area.

Edko announced on Tuesday that Eddie PENG has been cast in the role of Wong Fei-hung. The film also co-stars Angelababy. Both actors attended the ceremony to mark the first day of shooting.

Things are looking extremely bright for Peng's career, and he is already preparing for his next physically demanding role. Peng sits down with Time Out at the W Hong Kong to talk about his preparations as an MMA fighter and his thoughts on becoming a sex symbol.

Wannabe noirish crime drama collapses from a feeble script and zero chemistry.

Forget box office -- online video viewing in China has doubled in the last six months as its streaming leader offers hot American TV shows -- with (yes!) paid receipts to prove it.
