You again? - Zhang Han and Zheng Shuang became a favorite couple after Meteor Shower

Meteor Shower couple Zhang Han and Zheng Shuang meet up again for action-filled romantic comedy No limits 无极限. Directed by Feng Huayang (Kung Fu Hip Hop), the film is funded by … a real-estate company.

That’s right, apparently, the Chinese film industry is doing so well that the Antaneus Group, a major real estate company  headed by Beijing Film Academy graduate Zhang Baoquan, decided this year to invest in fifteen films, including the Korean co-production that co-starred Zhang Han -  Hearty Paws 2.

Other films include Cui Jian’s rock musical The Blue Bones, French – Chinese collaboration Dragon’s Kiss,  film adaptation of Italian opera Turantdot, Karen Mok – produced romantic comedy Running Girl, Yuen Woo Ping – directed Heroine, and 3-D featured animation Destiny.  If you’re interested, Zhang also gives a fascinating interview on why he believes that Chinese films will rapidly rise within four – five years, especially with the building of new movie screens.
