Zhang Ziyi and Jet Li to reunite in New Zealand?

Asian big screen superstars, Jet Li, and the Chinese bombshell Zhang Ziyi of Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon fame, could have their next starring role in a $20 million New Zealand production.

The film, A Kung Fu Western Love Story, was top of the list of five projects discussed by Chinese film and Government officials and Waitakere City Council yesterday.

“We think it would be fantastic to have two of China’s greatest stars, Jet Li and Zhang Ziyi, to kickstart New Zealand’s co-production venture with China,” said Pacific Culture and Arts Exchange chairman Jim He, who was organizing the talks. “It will definitely make an international impact.”

Interesting. Zhang Ziyi must have 3 or 4 projects on the go! New Zealand eh? I wonder what kind of storyline lumps NZ and China together? Will Jet Li be doing the Haka?
