The official weibo account of Bona Film Group posted a photo featuring directors Tsui Hark and Huang Jianxin and the CEO of Bona Yu Dong, announcing that Hsui’s new 3D directorial project “Tracks in the Snowy Forest” is scheduled to start filming in January.
Yu Dong revealed in an interview with thebeijingnews.com that the leading actors will all come from the mainland, with a sizeable amount coming from the northeast of China.
Set in the northeast, “Tracks in the Snowy Forest” was originally a novel written by Qu Bo, mainly revolving around the reconnaissance hero Yang Zirong as he outwitted a group of bandits led by Zuo Shandiao in the winter of 1946.
Yu also revealed that shooting will be no easy task because the film contains a number of war and skiing scenes.
The production crew have been setting up the outdoor shooting locations in the Greater Hinggan Mountains since September.
