South Korean actress, Song Hye Kyo, has reconfirmed that she is now back to work on John Woo’s (吳宇森) latest film project, Love and Let Love <生死戀>.
It has been four years since John Woo released his last film, the historical epic Red Cliff<赤壁>. Two years ago, the award-winning director expressed that he has already begun pre-production on his next film, a wartime romantic drama film, originally titled 1949. Zhang Ziyi (章子怡), Chang Chen (張震), and Song Hye Kyo were reported to star.
The pre-production of the film, however, was later put on hiatus after Woo was diagnosed with a tonsillar tumor in May 2012. Woo made a speedy recover, and pre-production resumed in January 2013. As reported by various Chinese and Korea media sources, principal photography will officially begin in April 2013.
The story of Love and Let Love, which will be filmed in Shanghai and Taiwan, will cover three decades of the characters’ lifetime, first beginning in Shanghai during the turbulent 1930. Song Hye Kyo stars as the daughter of a wealthy Shanghainese banker, and finds her life turning for the better after falling in love with a soldier.
