Tony explained that he’s exhausted from his current filming of “Lust, Caution” (directed by Oscar winner Ang Lee), and was afraid that he could not perform well in his role for Red Cliff.

The Battle of Red Cliff, directed by renowned director John Woo, is scheduled to start filming by end of March. John had personally stated his understanding for Tony’s decision. Currently it’s said that heartthrob Takeshi Kaneshiro will fill Tony’s role.
