Zombie invasions continue to China with The Four

Painted Skin's director returns for another magical wuxia film with gloomy tones.

Even if the CDC knows of no zombie viruses, zombies are everywhere in the news and media. Next month, they’re even making their appearance in ancient China in Gordon Chan’s The Four. Starring Deng Chao, Liu Yifei, Colin Chou, Anthony Wong, Ronald Cheng and Jiang Yiyan, The Four is a detective-wuxia action flick loosely based on the book of the same name. The change of gender for Heartless may mean that bird girl Heartless ( Liu Yifei ) and wolf boy Cold Blood (Deng Chao) also have a romantic relationship somehow .

The sequel’s already been approved for filming.
