What we know thus far…
- Tong Dawei and Zhang Ziyi will play husband/wife in the film.
- Takeshi Kaneshiro (replacing Chang Chen) and Song Hye Kyo play couple #2.
- Huang Xiaoming and Nagasawa Masami presumably make up the last couple.
The romantic drama will release in two parts (similar to John Woo’s Red Cliff). The first film will release at the end of 2014. The second feature will release in 2015. I’ll keep you posted on the latest.
