Some of China's brightest stars gathered when film "Let The Bullets Fly" finished shooting in Beijing recently. Unlike his previous project, director Jiang Wen delivered the film on schedule, Xinhuanet reports.
Hong Kong film stars Chow Yun fat and Carina Lau, as well as mainland actors Ge You, Jiang Wen and Jiang Wu joined the low-key shooting process.
The most exciting scenes, featuring a love scene between Ge You and Carina Lau and a scene between Ge You with Feng Xiaogang, were left until the end of shooting. Thanks to the timely conclusion of the shooting, director Jiang can now feature in his wife's TV series "Jin Hun II" as a guest actor.
As was previously discovered by reporters, Chow Yun fat was the first member to leave the cast after completing his work in Guangzhou. Then the most important part of the film moved to Ge You. This was also the ending and was shot in Beijing. After finishing the scenes with Carina Lau and Feng Xiaogang, Ge You was very excited and stated that he wanted to continue the filming. He also managed to maintain his sense of humor at the end of a long day of shooting.
According to the producers, "Let The Bullets Fly" has already received some invitations from international film festivals. However, as it is considered director Jiang's first commercial work, they are concentrating on the domestic market. The film is scheduled to premiere on the National Day holiday this year.
In the past, director Jiang had a reputation for going over the scheduled filming time. He was determined to alter that impression as he became a commercial director. He adhered to the filming schedule stringently. Although the production was affected by the bad weather during shooting, the cast of "Let The Bullets Fly" did not go over the time schedule it was given and was finished on time.
Insiders said that Hong Kong-based Emperor Entertainment Group boss Yang Shoucheng sent a message of congratulations and joked that this proved that Jiang was no longer an unreliable director.
