A sequel to director Gordon Chen’s romantic fantasy story “Painted Skin” recently started shooting in Dalian city, northeastern China’s Liaoning province.
Donnie Yen, Zhao Wei, Zhou Xun and Sun Li will join the film again, and mainland actor Huang Xiaoming will replace Chen Kun to play the male lead.
Adopted from Chinese novelist Pu Songling’s famous work “Erotic Ghost Story” or “Liao Zhai Zhi Yi”, the sequel will be an adventure story more than a love tale. It tells of when the couple’s son grows up and makes a journey to the west to seek the source of eternal youth for his parents. During the trip, he conquers many difficulties which are given to him by some powerful demons.
