World-renowned filmmaker Wong Kar-wai teamed up with his all-star cast in Beijing, including Tony Leung and Takeshi Kaneshiro, in promotion of their romantic comedy 'See You Tomorrow.'

Speaking at the event, Wong Karwai explained why he decided to produce the comedy.

"Most of the films for which I am an executive producer are comedies. I shot a movie years ago, called Tian Xia Wu Shang or literally translated into Chinese Odyssey, which is also a comedy with a similarly star-studded leading cast. Shooting 'See You Tomorrow' is also for the celebration of the 25th anniversary of my Jet Tone Film production company this year."

Inspired by a short story taken from Zhang Jiajia's I Belonged to You, the film features the stormy romance between a young woman and a married artist with an unfaithful wife.

Takeshi Kaneshiro said he's pleased after finding the right approach to portray Guan Chun, a leading role in the film.

"The director demanded that I should portray Guan Chun as an 18 year old. He asked me to behave younger and younger again since my portrayal often makes the character look over 30. There's a gap between my portrayal and the original character in the novel. Then I focused on narrowing the gap and making my acting appear less exaggerated. I felt pleasantly satisfied when I discovered the right direction for my acting."

Tony Leung also stars in the film.

Leung said he practiced mandarin Chinese a lot, as this is the first film he's done that's required him to speak mandarin only.

Directed Zhang Jiajia, the film also stars model- actress Angelababy, Hong Kong singer-actor Eason Chan, mainland actress Ma Su, Jia Ling and a number of other heavyweights.

'See You Tomorrow' is due for release on December 23.
