Matt Damon, Andy Lau, Jing Tian team up for Zhang Yimou’s “The Great Wall”


Director Zhang Yimou‘s first Hollywood flick, The Great Wall, will feature Andy Lau,Jing TianZhang Hanyun, Eddie Peng, Lu HanLin Gengxin, Zheng KaiChen Xudong, Huang Xuan ,TF Boys’s Wang Kaiyuan, alongside Hollywood actors Matt Damon and Williem Dafoe.    They’re really covering all the fan bases, but I’m hoping some of those will be cameo appearances since some of them really can not act.

Plot (script is written in English by a non-Chinese team) as follows per Hollywood Reporter, although Sina also mentions a female general aka stereotypical Asian love interest:

Damon, who is in final negotiations, will star as a soldier who is part of a group of mercenaries traveling to China in order to bring back gunpowder to Europe. When the group is attacked by mystical beasts, the man finds himself in a war between a secret warrior clan and the beasts.

  1. You forgot a very notable name that will also be in this film – Mr.Eddie Peng. I’m crossing my fingers that he gets a significant role considering the man can act and does well with fighting scenes.

    • Added him, Zheng Kai, and Huang Xuan. He’s actually listed as the first of the younger actors, so he may get a decent role. He and Lu Han and Lin Gengxin are the only ones to get one-line descriptions in Legendary’s weibo, so they might actually have more than one scene.
