Zhang Ziyi Invests In “Sophie’s Revenge” Sequel

Zhang Ziyi (章子怡) announced that she will be co-financing the sequel movie, Sophie’s Revenge <非常完美>, which won critical acclaim and performed admirably at the box office when it was released in 2009. Sophie’s Revenge was co-produced with South Korea’s CJ Entertainment and featured a popular cast such as So Ji-sub, Fan Bingbing ( 范冰冰), Ruby Lin (林心如), Yao Chen (姚晨), and Peter Ho (何潤東). The sequel’s preliminary filming date was scheduled for June 2012, in which Zhang Ziyi hoped to feature its original cast once again.

The plot in Sophie’s Revenge 2will chronicle the love adventures of “Sophie” (Zhang Ziyi) , a comic book artist who dared to go to extreme lengths and mechanisms in her fight for love. For  the sequel, Zhang Ziyi hoped to find either a renown Hong Kong or Taiwanese actor to be added to the cast, in an attempt to seek new sparks and add increased star power of the lead cast.

At the end of March, Ziyi will travel to Shenyang, Liaoning Province to complete the filming of Wong Kar Wai’s (王家衛) biopic, The Grandmaster <一代宗師)>. Filming for Sophie’s Revenge 2 was expected to take place in Hong Kong, Singapore and other locations.

      1. Nah, I’m not jealous, gentleman…

  2. ‘The Grandmaster’ actually started filming before ‘Ip Man 1’ (the original planned Chinese title for ‘Ip Man’ was 一代宗師, but, because WKW already took that name for ‘The Grandmaster’ they have to change it to just 葉問) and now, they are going to film ‘Ip Man 3’ and ‘The Grandmaster’ still has not finished.

    1. I was told that any movie which directed by WKW usually have to wait longer than any normal movies directed by other directors. That’s because WKW movies never have a script to start with and the whole directing came from his ideas from time to time. Someone also told me that Takuya was mad at WKW in the previous movie and decided not to film in any WKW movies in future due to that reason, because WKW movies doesn’t have a script for their actors.

      1. Yeah, he doesn’t have a script. He doesn’t know what he wants. He keeps filming until such time the movie must be finished, like years. The movie that took years to make, Lawrence of Arabia turned out to be a classic. WKW movies, no offense, I know he has fans, he won awards, he got international recognition, but his films are pretentious blahhh of rubbish.

  3. You are all correct that she had plastic surgery to enhance her looks. I think without it, she actually look more like a natural beauty. Alas, in her quest to be “100%” beautiful, she only just looks good and only glamorous in a hip hugging long gown just not beautiful anymore.
