#217. Berita Filem : Chinese director plans film on 1976 quake

HONG KONG – One of China's most successful commercial directors plans to make a 150 million Chinese yuan ($22 million) movie about the country's deadliest earthquake in modern times, which killed at least 240,000 people, a production company said Thursday.

Feng Xiaogang plans to start shooting the film about the 1976 quake in northeastern Tangshan city in July and releasing it on July 28, 2010 — the 34th anniversary of the natural disaster, production company Huayi Brothers said in a statement sent to The Associated Press on Thursday.

The statement quoted Feng as saying no actors have been cast yet.

The 1976 quake and the temblor in China's southwestern Sichuan province on May 12, 2008, which left nearly 90,000 people dead or missing, are the deadliest in the country's modern history.

Huayi Brothers said in the statement the movie, called "Tangshan Earthquake" in Chinese, is a co-production with state-run China Film Group and the city of Tangshan, which is contributing tens of millions of yuan (millions of U.S. dollars) in funding.

Feng's credits include "Big Shot's Funeral," "A World Without Thieves," "The Banquet" and most recently, the romantic comedy "If You Are the One."
