29 Nov 2001 -- Faye is shoting another movie, tha name is 天 下 無 雙 (Unicode UTF-8). The English name would be "There is nothing better than this, whatever it is ..." This movie is one of the reasons the HK concerts are push forward/postponed. She is also shoting 2046 at the time since Wong Kar Wai is producing both of them. The new movie will shown during Lunar New Year in HK. More info for Japanese readers here (Thanks TAKA).

About 2046, Wong Kar Wai answered some questions the other day after receiving a Bronze Bahunia award. He then said:

"The film will resume shooting in the Mainland later this month. At that time, there will be a formal announcement. Nonetheless, I cannot deny that there are changes in the cast. Some actors will join the production, others will leave. I ask that everyone not focus on the status of Takuya Kimura because there will be many big actors in this film. I can't say anything else except that one South Korean actor and one South Korean actress will be joining the production.

The cast and crew will be made up of Hong Kong people and Europeans. In addition to Christopher Doyle, cinematography will be handled by Jean-Yves Escoffier. He did the cinematography for LES AMANTS DE PONT-NEUF. I hope that he can add a fresh perspective to 2046 by mixing in elements from a different culture."   Source: Wong Kar-Wai World Wide
