Amid rumors of drastic cast changes for Tiny Times 3, writer-director Guo Jingming confirmed on his Weibo microblog on December 2 that Amber Kuo will reprise her role as Gu Li. Singapore male model Vivian Dawson (Double Trouble) will also reportedly join the new cast.
Fan and media speculation ran high after Guo Jingming expressed regrets regarding being unable to bring back the complete original cast in an earlier Weibo post. He has revealed that talks with producers and agencies are underway, and it is still unclear if newlywed Mini Yang will return for the upcoming films.
Based on Guo's best-selling novels of the same title, the first two movies in the series that came out this year enjoyed huge popularity and scored a massive RMB$780 million in total at the domestic box office. Set in uptown Shanghai, the youth romance series brings to screen a lavish lifestyle that greatly appeals to the young urban demographic. With scripts ready for Tiny Times 3 and Tiny Times 4, audiences can look forward to more drama and an even more luxurious wardrobe in the new films.
