Fan Bingbing is the first actor confirmed for director Guo Jingming‘s next ambitious project, a motion capture feature film of his fantasy series Legend of Ravaging Dynasties 临界·爵迹. The series, China’s bestselling Western-styled fantasy, focuses on stories of cavaliers and sorcerers set in an alternate realm of four kingdoms.
Just to get a feel of the extent of his ambition, the film is scheduled for Summer 2016 already. It will be one of five films involving either him or people from his company set to be released within the next year. From Yang Mi to Zhang Ziyi to Shu Qi to now Fan Bingbing, Guo Jingming has some of China’s biggest actresses covered. Guo Jingming maybe new to film, but he might be China’s most prolific producer yet.
