Possibility of Yao Ming-Kobe Bryant Basketball Movie

The slogan of the National Basketball Association — “where amazing happens” — might be going international, as the Shanghai Film Group Corporation is planning to film a basketball movie starring Yao Ming and other NBA stars. Backed by NBA commissioner David Stern, the movie is reportedly named Amazing, a name suggested by Stern and inspired by the NBA slogan. The Chinese name is Shen Qi (神奇).

The movie, to be directed by mainland director Hu Xuehua, will be about American basketball stars training in China, but apart from the name and general plot, not much else has been revealed. When telephoned by reporters yesterday, the chairman of the Shanghai Film Group Corporation, Ren Zhonglun, stated, “At the present time, it can only be said that the name of the movie has been determined. The actors, investors, and other details and problems will have to wait until after we sign the contract to be revealed.”

Nevertheless, thanks to the support of the NBA, the possibility that NBA stars will participate is enormous. Apart from Yao Ming, there are hopes that Lakers shooting guard Kobe Bryant and the retired Magic Johnson will join the film. According to reports, Yao Ming and Johnson have already agreed to act, and the company is currently in contact with Kobe. In reply to this, Ren Zhonglun only admitted that they really were in contact with Yao Ming, Johnson, and other NBA stars, but that before signing the contract, it was not convenient to say more.

Filming will begin in August, exactly during the NBA off-season, and must finish before October to match with the start of the new season. Insiders revealed that the most important film roles will be the master and apprentice, played respectively by Yao Ming and mainland star Huang Xiaoming. Hong Kong actor-singer Shawn Yue may also be appearing.

Shawn Yue, who had once been on the Hong Kong youth basketball team, said to the Hong Kong media yesterday that it was true that both sides had been in contact, and that he hoped to participate if his schedule fit. Huang Xiaoming’s manager, Zhou Siwei, confirmed that they were in the middle of discussion with the company.

Huayi Brothers ft IHQ – when Rain, Lee Dahae, Jang Keunsuk, Kim Taehee, Song Seungheon come to China

Two of the biggest entertainment empires from China and Korea – Huayi Brothers and IHQ – have recently announced a collaboration effort in TV drama production.

“This co-production won’t just be Korean actors filming in China, but really tell the story between Koreans and Chinese. We will film in both countries, and complete post-production in Korea,” said Hao Lin, head of Hao Lin Studios of Huayi Brothers.

Two series are currently in production – spy series “Kung Fu” and modern love story “Autumn Rhapsody.” From the Korean side, “Kong Fu” will star Rain (IHQ), Lee Dahae(IHQ) and Jang Keunsuk (Huayi) and will tell the tale of a Korean-Chinese spy war against Japanese imperialism during WWII. The series is co-produced by the Hao Lin Studios and the Korean Studio that brought you “Iris.”

“Autumn Rhapsody” is a modern love story of two couples, one in Korea and one in China. The Korean couple will be Kim Taehee (IHQ) and Song Seungheon (IHQ). No Chinese actors have been announced yet, though Huayi Brothers CEO said “We will choose the best artists to join the cast. Huayi has a lot of acting resources, and we’ll find the right artists to join the filming. That doesn’t exclude big names like Li Bingbing (Huayi) and Deng Chao (Huayi) as long as the roles are right.”

In recent years, Huayi has been increasingly collaborating with foreign companies, including “Hot Summer Days” with Fox and “High School Musical” with Disney this year. Last year, Huayi and Shanghai Media Group also collaborated with Korea to remake the comedy “Nonstop.” IHQ, too, has been eyeing outside Korea with projects such as film “Blood Vampire” starring Jun Ji-yun.
