Updates on John Woo's Red Cliff

John Woo's "The Battle of Red Cliff" had just found a new partner for the joint production of this historic war epic. During the signing with their new partner Chinese Film Group, John Woo announced that Chow Yun Fat, Tony Leung Chiu Wai and Taiwanese supermodel Lin Chi Ling had signed on for this film. The rest of the cast will shape up after the script is completed.

"The Battle of the Red Cliff" recounts the decisive battle between the allied forces of the southern warlords (Liu Bei and Sun Quan), and the northern warlord Cao Cao, during the period of the Three Kingdoms.

For this war epic, John Woo is planning to set up six units to capture different scenes simultaneously and will be using 4 US-based effect companies for the special effects. The set will be located at Hebei Province and construction has already started. Film production will begin by March next year.
