Is Gillian Chung out of Chen Kaige's "Mei Lanfang"?

Thursday, June 19, 2008

Chen Kaige's new film Mei Lanfang which is set to hit theaters this in December 2008 is apparently already causing some controversy as China Daily is reporting that her scenes may be cut out of the movie:

Some media reports have suggested that all scenes featuring Gillian will be deleted. Such a suspicion was caused by a promotional booklet released by China Film Group Corporation, the movie's producer during the Shanghai International Film Festival.
I'm not sure I'm really buying it - but it does give the movie, which also stars Zhang Ziyi - some extra hype between now and its opening.
