Wong Kar-wai to Produce and Co-Direct 18-Episode Drama Series



After waiting many, many years for for Wong Kar-wai‘s long-gestating The Grandmaster, it thankfully looks like it won’t be another nearly decade-long absence for the director. The In the Mood For Love helmer recently hinted we’ll get news on his next film “soon,” but first, following in the footsteps of David Lynch, Steven Soderbergh, Cary Fukunaga, Jane Campion and more, he’s making the transition to television.

According to THR, the powerful Chinese production company Huanxi Media Group is funding an original, 18-episode drama series that Wong will produce, as well as direct some of. Although no story details are available yet, each episode will be in the $3.5 million dollar range and the entire series will consist of two seasons, one clocking in at 12 episodes and the other with six.

With production on the first season expected to finish in 2017, a digital release both in China and around the world is being planned. While we’d certainly like to see another feature from Wong, it sounds like he’s getting all the resources he needs for this, so hopefully we learn more details — including casting — soon.

Edison Chen dates married model



Today in "sleeze never stops sleezing", Edison Chen is dating a Mainland model who also happens to be married.  Because it's pretty hard to deny that when the paps catch you smooching in public lmao.

His response (from JayneStars)

After the encounter, Edison shared a picture of himself wearing a t-shirt that read, “[expletive] We Do What We Want” with the caption, “People keep asking me to stand up and say something but I’m out of breath… read my tee shirt and get my reply… [by the way, I’m] dating girls in 15 different cities so stop hating on me.”

The husband of the model posted an angry rant wherein he said that they were estranged now, but that she'd cheated on him with Edison Chen first.

And no one is surprised.
