Here is a brief casting update for all of you who enjoy films such as Hero and House of Flying Daggers [me me!]. The director of these films, Zhang Yimou, has picked up Chow Yun-Fat and Gong Li [sometimes credited as Li Gong] to star in his latest film project Autumn Remembrance.

Autumn Remembrance

According to Variety, Zhang Yimou has recently picked up both Chow Yun-Fat and Gong Li to star in his latest story of star-crossed lovers who are most likely going to have to duke it out in order to survive, escape, or seek redemption. Though I thought Yimou's film Hero, starring Jet Li, ended somewhat poorly, I thought House of Flying Daggers was a damn good film and currently have the DVD sitting right in front of me.

If Zhang Yimou can repeat some of the cool shit [flying daggers and arrows perhaps?] that he did in House of Flying Daggers, than you can definitely count me in on an opening weekend theatre visit; hell, I'd even pay the evening ticket price.

The story of Autumn Remembrance follows the tale of two star-crossed lovers, Gong as an imperial bodyguard and Chow as a Prince, as they attempt a dangerous journey to escape persecution for their love.

Chow Yun-Fat is also currently signed on to play a pirate captain in the second Disney sequel Pirates of the Caribbean 3. You can see Gong Li this year in the upcoming film Memoirs of a Geisha.

To check out the whole report, head over to Variety.

Stay tuned for updates.
