Liu Yifei to star opposite Nicolas Cage, Hayden Christensen in “Outcast”


Liu Yifei is crying because she once again will probably play the token Asian martial arts girl.

Actress Crystal Liu Yifei has been announced to star opposite Nicolas Cage, Hayden Christensen in “Outcast.”

Based on a screenplay by James Dormer (who penned episodes of British TV series Spooks and Strike Back), Outcast revolves around two jaded Crusaders who chose to wander off toward the East, finally arriving in western China, where they become entangled in romance and antagonism with local royalty.

The film is to be made in English, Zhang said, and it will qualify as an official co-production under the guidelines stipulated by the State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT), with Yunnan Film Group providing more than half of the undisclosed budget. The Australian-U.S. Arclight Films will be among the companies involved in the project, he added.
