Hu Ge (Game of Hunting), who recently wrapped up filming Wild Goose Lake, guest stars in director Shunji Iwai’s first Chinese-language feature Last Letter, which has recently released character posters and a trailer ahead of its premiere on November 9th at the Golden Horse Film Festival. Zhou Xun plays the lead, a woman who reunites with her high school crush at a class reunion.
With the youngest leads yet for a major production, xianxia series Legend of Awakening 天醒之路 has recently began filming on-location in Xinjiang and Ningxia. The series stars Chen Feiyu, Deng Enxi, Xiong Ziqi, and Cheng Xiao of Cosmic Girls and seems to follow the typical xianxia mold of a group of young people journeying across a fantasy land while fighting bad guys.
The series has the youngest leads yet for a major production, with Chen Feiyu born in 2000 and Deng Enxin in 2005. The previous two are currently streaming Youku series Eagles and Youngsters, with Wang Junkai (1999) and Wenqi (2003), and upcoming series The Great Lord , with Wang Yuan (2000) and Ouyang Nana (2000).
Zhou Xun (Our Time Will Come) stars as the main protagonist in upcoming romance film Last Letter 你好， 之华, and she’ll be joined by teen actresses Zhang Zifeng (A Love For Separation) and Deng Enxi (The Devotion of Suspect X). Qin Hao (Legend of the Demon Cat) and Du Jiang (Operation Red Sea) have also been cast in unspecified roles.
