Photoshoots and posters that caught our eyes this week. What caught yours?(more…)
With a track record of supporting talented new directors by producing films like Dying to Survive, A or B, and How Long Will I Love U, Xu Zheng will hopefully continue this trend with his latest production, pet-themed ensemble film Adoring 宠爱 by new director Yang Zi.
Adoring finished filming early in the summer and is set for a Dec. 31, 2019 release date. The film feature six segments – Yu Hewei X Li Landi, Wu Lei X Zhang Zifeng, Yang Zishan X Wallace Chung, William Chan X Zhong Chuxi, Tan Jianci X Kan Qingzi, and poor Guo Qilin all by himself (but with a puppy!) . Can you name all the cast members from the Xu Zheng-judged Season Two of I Am An Actor?(more…)
With directors and a cast riveling that of a mid-budget film, whodunnit mystery series Horizontal Tower 摩天大楼 is the latest innovation in Internet series. The series will be filmed by three directors – Leste Chen , Matt Wu, and Chao-Jen Hsu – who will film the stories of the various characters separately. The whole show will be told from the perspective of all nine suspects living on the same floor of a skyscrapper, giving the audience plenty of time to try and guess who did it. Yang Zishan and Guo Tao play the detectives while Angelababy guest stars as the victim.
A round-up of currently filming dramas, mostly detective procedurals and rom-coms, without their own posts yet. Which ones are you looking forward to the most?
Replacement Princess 冒牌太子妃
Starring: Eleanor Lee, Zhao Yiqin
The rise to power of a free-spirited bandit who somehow stumbles into marriage with the Crowned Prince.
Never Gone 原来你还在这里 released a new set of posters comparing the young and grown-up versions of its four leads – Li Landi and Yang Zishan, Hu Xianxu and Han Dongjun, Li Gengxi and Su Qing, and Bian Cheng and Tan JIanci.
Pretty much everyone but the two adult leads have gotten more well-known since the series was filmed. Lan Yingying, Li Landi, and Tan Jianci have all been applauded for their performances on I’m an Actor / The Birth of an Actor, Hu Xianxu failed on that show but did get his first girlfriend in college, Su Qing was a hit as the antagonist in The Story of Yanxi Palace, Bian Cheng in Ruyi’s Royal Love in the Palace, while Li Gengxi debuted in her first lead drama My Classmate From Far, Far Away.
Hopefully, the release of the posters means they’ll capitalize on the hype and release the drama soon. Meanwhile, here’s a promo song by Han Dongjun:
The first trailer for modern romance drama Never Gone has been released, and stars Yang Zishan (Red Rose) and Han Dongjun (Wuxin: The Monster Killer 2) as a young couple whose sweet romance through high school and university crumbles after getting hit by the harsh realities of life outside the school yard. Talented young actors Li Landi (of cult hit My Huckleberry Friends) and Hu Xianxu (Nirvana in Fire II) play the younger counterparts.
