Hong Kong actress Maggie Cheung who has been in seclusion for six consecutive years will make a guest appearance in the starry romantic comedy "Hot Summer Days."
But just a short glimpse of this luminously elegant star and her guest appearance in the movie will not mark her return to the big screen.
The Chongqing Times confirmed the news of Cheung's appearance in the film with Huayi Brothers Media Corp., which is co-financing the project. The company did not give any details as to why Cheung was added to the cast, citing a confidentiality agreement, the report said. Furthermore, no one elaborated on what Cheung's role in the movie would be.
"Hot Summer Days" is American film studio 20th Century Fox's first investment in a Chinese movie. Its cast lineup includes Barbie Hsu, Nicolas Tse, Daniel Wu, Vivian Hsu, Rene Liu and Jacky Cheung.
The film that weaves five amazing love stories among 10 superstars closely resembles the 2003 British romantic comedy film "Love Actually" which examines different aspects of love among eight very different couples.
