As all of the fans most probably know, there is a new movie which is being filmed by John Woo for the 2014. It is called "The Crossing" (太平輪).
It is the first film by John Woo after four years of rest and it is already clamed to me one of the most expected big-budget projects of 2014 (the two-part film is budgeted at $40 million). As you know, such actors will be starring in the movie: Zhang Ziyi, Huang Xiaoming, Tong Dawei, Song Hye-kyo (South Korea), Masami Nagasawa (Japan) and Takeshi Kaneshiro (Taiwan).
The script is written by Hui-Ling Wang who in 2001 was nominated for Academy Award for Best Writing as the script-writer for "the Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon".
The film will be released in two parts. The Crossing was originally titled "1949" and was planned since 2009. It tells the story of three couples aboard a ship in the South China Sea fleeing China for Taiwan during the 1949 revolution.
