Produced by Zhang Xiaolong, who also created the now famous Legend of Zhen Huan, upcoming drama Red Sorghum has now released its first trailer. The drama stars Zhou Xun and, by the looks of the twelve-minute trailer, follows the plotline of Zhang Yimou’s movie. (The trailer does manage to reveal the main plot of what will be a forty episode drama into twelve minutes, so be warned.) Zhou Xun is twice the age her character is supposed to be in the beginning, but she still looks young enough that one begins to wonder if she’s been eating certain human organs. Zhu Yawen, who plays the father of her child and a laborer, should watch out.
Zhou Xun also recently featured in a pretty photo shoot for Marie Claire. These will have to do until high quality stills are released for the drama.
