Chinese director Jin Yimeng, who made a splash in 2009 with the romantic comedy "Sophie's Revenge" ("Fei Chang Wan Mei") starring Zhang Ziyi, is making headway into Hollywood with another love story, Chinese media reported.
Jin has signed with the Montecito Picture Company to make a film about a romance spanning the geographic distance between China and the United States, QQ.com reported Monday, November 29, 2010. Montecito Picture is the production company behind such Hollywood hits as "Up in the Air" (2009) and "The Pink Panther" (2006).
U.S.-educated Jin has penned the story in English. The film will also be shot entirely in English. Casting details have yet to be released.
The director plans to shoot the film in China and the United States, although the report did not mention specific dates.
Jin came into the spotlight in 2009 following the box-office success of "Sophie's Revenge", her second feature film. The romantic comedy about a cartoonist (Zhang Ziyi) trying to win her fianc¨¦ (So Ji-Sub) back from a popular actress (Fan Bingbing) grossed 110 million yuan (US$16.5 million), making Jin the first woman to make it onto the 100-million-yuan Chinese directors' club.
