After devoting an entire year to her family, actress Zhao Wei has announced her comeback role, actually two roles.
Zhao Wei will play two roles in "Underground Resistance" ("Shi Kong Di Dao"), a film that involves romance and time travel, the actress said Tuesday, December 21, 2010 at a press conference held for the film in Tianjin.
"But I can't say more at the moment. The scripts are still undergoing some changes," Zhao Wei was quoted in a report on Sina.com.cn.
The film, directed by Li Xin ("Dazzling"; 2002), will also star actor Huang Xiaoming ("Sacrifice"; 2010), Zhao Wei's classmate from the Beijing Film Academy.
It will be the first collaboration between them, who are both now A-list stars.
Shooting is scheduled to start in February, with a release date set in the second half of 2011.
Zhao Wei, whose notable films include "Painted Skin" (2008) and "Mulan" (2009), disappeared from the public eye in late 2009 after finishing her part in Daniel Lee's martial-arts film, "14 Blades". She gave birth to her first child, a baby girl, this April.
