Liu Yifei Joins Nicolas Cage in New Film
Permalink  
 


Gosh, seems like suddenly we are overwhelmed with movie news richness! I am very interested in this one, I like these kind of period movies. I saw Hayden in a movie on tv recently, and I thought he had improved tremendously since Star Wars, he was pretty good. Jumpers, I think it was called. I am going to make a guess that he will have the romantic lead and Nic will be his mentor-type figure.

Chinese actress Liu Yifei will star in the upcoming China-U.S. romance-war epic "Outcast", opposite Nicolas Cage and Hayden Christensen, which begins shooting in Beijing and Yunnan Province in September, according to the movie's Chinese production company.

Yunnan Film Group has announced the news via its Sina Weibo microblog, saying that a party was held recently in Beijing to welcome the lead actors on board the project.

The film tells the story of European soldiers traveling through east Asia in the 12th century and their relationships with a Chinese princess and her royal family.

With horse-riding action and swordplay woven throughout the plot of "Outcast", the film's lead actors are getting well-acquainted with their animal co-stars, as they have all been receiving extensive equestrian training on set.

While in the saddle, Liu Yifei posted a picture of herself in mid-training on her Sina Weibo. She says she is working with the same one who coached her in horseback riding six years ago, while she prepared for her role in "The Forbidden Kingdom", which starred Jackie Chan and Jet Li.

The actress, who spent her early teenage years in New York, added in her Weibo post that she was trying to pick up a British accent, which she is finding to be quite difficult.

"Outcast" will be director Nick Powell's debut film. Previously, Powell worked as a stunt and fight choreographer for films such as "The Bourne Identity", "X-Men: The Last Stand" and "Resident Evil: Retribution", according to IMDB.

Two stuntmen gone director? Is this going to be a case of, 'the battles were amazing, but the pace, story and pretty much everything else was bad' I hope working with these people is a good choice for Nic.

Good job he's improved, some of his lines in Attack of the Clones made me cringe.

Like, what happened to the days when Nic would work with Oliver Stone or David Lynch?

Unsure about this one. Who knows, could be a masterpiece...? I do hope he does Dying Of The Light though...if Joe continues to get acclaim maybe he will be sought out once more by the "elite" (even though that doesnt ensure quality but you know what I mean..)

Frozen Ground seems to be getting good reviews despite not having an 'elite' director.  I am glad Nic doesn't stay all mainsteam and boring.

Well yeah, they are good but it's a case of Nics films not appearing in every theatre. I do think its good that he's not boring and trying new things, can't blame him for that, his career n all that
