Based on the well-known story of the Hongmen Banquet, which took place in 206 B.C. The movie will be directed by Lu Chuan (City of Life and Death) and will star Daniel Wu (Shinjuku Incident, New Police Story) and Chang Chen (Red Cliff 1,2).
The story of two warring generals (Liu Bang and Xiang Yu) fighting for control of China at the end of the Qin Dynasty. The trailer shows some great stuff, big sets, interesting characters and certainly a movie i am looking forward to seeing.
Lu Chuan said, “THE LAST SUPPER is not the Hong Gate Banquet. It is the fate of a group of people. It isn’t just a banquet but a historical truth.” The actors also unveiled each character photo from drawing straws. The Ng Yin Cho version Xiang Yu’s dark domination, the Liu Ye version Liu Bang’s wild carelessness, the Chang Chen version Han Xin’s tragic heaviness, the Qin Lan version Empress Lu’s weathered grandeur were completely opposite the actors’ own image because the director hoped to bring back a real historical figure in front of the audience”.
