This was actually shot before the Ruyi one but I think the other one received more attention. Anyway, this is a movie directed by Ann Hui. It’s a war movie.
Many war movies focused on the male side, but this one will focus on one of the notable heroines of that time, Fang Lan (方蘭), but she is often known as Fang Gu (方姑). This is, of course, Zhou Xun’s character.
Wallace will play her lover, Li Jin Rong (李錦榮). His name sounds really, really familiar. I can’t place it at the moment. Not sure if he was mentioned or appeared in Dong Jiang Heroes yet wasn’t focused on since the other drama focused on Liu Hei Zai and his side mostly.
Which brings me to the other essential character of the drama, Liu Hei Zai. He will be portrayed by Eddie Peng. (Good luck with that since Wang Lei already stole my heart, lol.)
They will be joined by other veteran stars, such as Bau Hei Jing, Ray Lui, Tony Leung Ka Fai, Eddie Cheung, and more. Check out the trailer (uploaded by 双喜電影 A Really Happy Film). It looks quite promising.
