Principal photography of Anna & Anna commences on 18 Jan in Shanghai. Directed by Aubrey Lam from Hong Kong, Anna & Anna stars top China actor Lu Yi, award winning Hong Kong actress Karena Lam and popular Taiwanese model-actor Tender. The film will be shot on location in Shanghai and Singapore and is scheduled for theatrical release in Asia from July 2007.

The film tells a story about Anna (Karena Lam) who seems to have everything in life, from love to career, until her boss decides to post her to China. There she meets her ex-boyfriend, Ouyang (Lu Yi) and his wife, Si-Yu (Karena Lam) who looks exactly like her and later turns out to be her doppelganger. Love for her ex-beau rekindles and she decides to switch identities with Si-Yu for a week. Si-Yu then flies to Singapore where she falls in love with Billy (Tender), Anna’s current boyfriend. Realising that Ouyang is no longer the man she used to love, Anna desperately wants her old life back, but her doppelganger has plans of her own too.

Acclaimed scriptwriter/director Aubrey Lam (12 Nights and Hidden Track) will direct 2002 Golden Horse Awards Best Newcomer and Best Supporting Actress Karena Lam (July Rhapsody, Inner Sense and Silk), 2003 CCTV-MTV Best Male Artiste Lu Yi (Seven Swords, Jasmine Love and A Time to Love), and Taiwanese model-actor Tender (The Heirloom, Taiwan TV Series The Hospital) in this romantic thriller with music composed by a well-known Singaporean musician-song-writer, Dick Lee.

The film is presented by Ascension Pictures and is Singapore-based PIP Productions’ first co-production with China. Lotus Entertainment will be handling the worldwide sales of the film.
