John Woo is settling in on the early stages of his next moviie, "The Battle of Red Cliff," an epic story based on the beloved Chinese novel "Romance of the Three Kingdoms." And he’s got a pretty solid cast so far!
"Red Cliff" is an adaptation of the classic Chinese novel entitled "Romance of the Three Kingdoms." The story takes place during China’s Three Kingdoms in the year 208 during the final days of the Han Dynasty.
The epic battle of Red Cliff, which is said to have had some 1 million soldiers, will be shot by six separate units appointed by Woo, each one often shooting simultaneously. "The Battle of Red Cliff" is being written by Wang Hui-ling, who most famously penned Ang Lee’s classic, "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon."
