画皮2  Painted Skin 2

由中国大陆和香港合拍的东方爱情魔幻电影《画皮2》即将以大制作并携重量级明星阵容重返银屏。

取材自清代蒲松龄所写的中国古典小说《聊斋志异》的同名故事并重新编剧的电影《画皮》阵容可谓匠心独具,由陈国富担任监制、《刀见笑》导演乌尔善执导的影片《画皮2》将于5月开机。赵薇、周迅、陈坤将在片中再聚首。其中周迅依旧饰演小唯,赵薇和陈坤则扮演全新的角色,续集故事与前作无太大关联。

 

《画皮2》主要讲述王生(原陈坤饰)和佩蓉(原赵薇饰)的儿子王英,西去寻找父母传奇事迹过程中,再遇狐仙小唯的故事。由于多位编剧对《画皮2》的故事构架进行了几十次的调整,陈坤和赵薇最终要扮演的角色可能是全新创造出来的,而周迅则将续演小唯。《画皮2》将继续走以情动人的路线,但在魔幻特效方面会加重笔墨,将聘请好莱坞公司参与制作。影片将于5月开机,计划2012年上映。

Painted skin

 

The Chinese vampire film "Painted Skin (画皮 huà pí) " has a sequel in production with most cast members returning to the film.

 

Elements of the new film are moving forward. It features a different story unrelated to the original. Only Zhou Xun(周迅) will reprise her role as the vampire-like woman, Xiao Wei(小唯).

In the sequel, Wang Sheng(王生)(originally by Chen Kun(陈坤)) and Wang Ying(王英), son of Wang Sheng and Pei Rong(佩蓉)(originally by Zhao Wei(赵薇)) travel westward to explore and reencounter the fox spirit Xiao Wei along the way.

 

It's no doubt why people are so keen on producing film sequels considering the massive fan bases and well-warmed potential markets. "Painted Skin" directed by Gordon Chan mustered about 200 million yuan (US$30.5 million) at the box office within 19 days in 2008.

This time, Uershan, director of the film "Dao Jian Xiao(刀见笑)", or "The Butcher, the Chef and the Swordsman", has taken over the directorial reins from Gordon Chan with Chen Kuo-fu as executive producer.

"Painted Skin" is adapted from the ancient novel "Liaozhai Zhiyi(聊斋志异)", or "Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio", written by Pu Songling(蒲松龄) in the Qing Dynasty.

 

KEY WORDS:

画皮(huà pí):Painted Skin.

聊斋志异(liáo zhāi zhì yì): One of the most famous collections of Chinese stories about the supernatural and spooky, written by Pu Songling in the Qing Dynasty.
