“L.O.R.D.” Guo Jingming wants to shape Chinese sci-fi, fantasy, animation

587266457

Gathering up the faces of China’s biggest fandom isn’t just a commercial ploy for Guo Jingming, but also  necessary to insure the success of the launching of an industry.

China’s most ambitious animation project to date, Guo Jingming’s Legend of Ravaging Dynasties (L.O.R.D.) is not only  China’s first motion capture animation film and first Western fantasy film, it’s also going to be made using exclusively Chinese animation teams in little over a year. The plan is one of many moves he’s made as a part of his aggressive entrance into the fields of Chinese science fiction and fantasy literature, film, and animation.

Unlike the other Chinese animation projects that are produced by one company, Guo  wants to shake the entire industry up, working with a dozen Chinese companies to simultaneously develop characters and backgrounds. Guo Jingming reportedly even gave a few million RMB to the primary team Original Force, just so they would upgrade their software instead of using foreign companies.

Human models for the ambitious project include Fan Bingbing, Yang Mi, Chen Xuedong, Kris Wu Yifan, Amber Kuo, William Chan, Yan Yikuan, Aarif Lee,  Lin Yun, Wang Duo, and  TF Boys‘ Wang Yuan. You can tell Guo Jingming went straight for the biggest fandoms with this cast to insure his project succeeds.

Director Zhang Yimou‘s first Hollywood flick, The Great Wall, will feature Andy Lau,Jing TianZhang Hanyun, Eddie Peng, Lu HanLin Gengxin, Zheng KaiChen Xudong, Huang Xuan ,TF Boys’s Wang Kaiyuan, alongside Hollywood actors Matt Damon and Williem Dafoe.    They’re really covering all the fan bases, but I’m hoping some of those will be cameo appearances since some of them really can not act.

Plot (script is written in English by a non-Chinese team) as follows per Hollywood Reporter, although Sina also mentions a female general aka stereotypical Asian love interest:

Damon, who is in final negotiations, will star as a soldier who is part of a group of mercenaries traveling to China in order to bring back gunpowder to Europe. When the group is attacked by mystical beasts, the man finds himself in a war between a secret warrior clan and the beasts.

Weibo Wednesday: May 14, 2014

Lots of goodies in this Weibo round-up, including two dating announcements! But first, let’s kick it off with a few Mother’s Day posts, some touching and some silly…

Yu Haoming with mother

俞灏明: #世上只有妈妈好#妈妈的好,不仅仅在于生活中无微不至的照料,苦口婆心的叮嘱,以及义无反顾地默默支持.更难能可贵的是,每次合影都自觉向前冲,就为了衬得我的脸能稍小一点。大家说,哪儿还能找到这么好的妈妈…[泪]妈咪,母亲节快乐!我爱你!@热戴芋 @热戴芋霖

Meteor Shower actor Yu Haoming wrote a poignant message for his mother, who was with him every step of the way after he was injured in an explosion in 2010 when filming a drama with S.H.E’s Selina. After being hospitalized with numerous third-degree burns, his mother personally cooked every meal for him and brought it to the hospital for him to eat. Haoming shared in a recent interview that his mom is still in the habit of calling him a few times a day to check up on him.

And for those of you wondering what Haoming is up to, he just started filming a drama called Before the Rain (暴雨将至), which also stars Huang Zhizhong and Jordan Chan.

#In this world, only Mom is good# Mom’s goodness lies not only in her meticulous care in life, the urging of her patient persuasion, and her duty-bound silent support. Even more precious is that every time we take a picture, I will consciously rush onward, in order to make my face a little smaller. Everyone, where can you find such a good mother? Mommy, Happy Mother’s Day! I love you!
