Red Cliff is the highest budgeted Chinese movie ever produced; it is directed by renowned director John Woo and featured a strong cast of Takeshi Kaneshiro, Tony Leung, Vicki Zhao, Lin Zhi Ling etc.

The filming of big budget movie “The Battle of Red Cliff” suffered a mini-crisis when one of the leading actors Chow Yun Fat ‘resigned’ from the movie last weekend.

Surprisingly, the other actor that quit earlier last month, Tony Leung has decided to join the production again. According to some news source, Tony and the producers have already agreed on terms, and it’s pending on official signings only.

Well, who would have thought of these dramatic incidents; it’s better than the movie itself… perhaps someone should write a script and make it into a movie lo.

Since that Tony’s role is already taken by Takeshi Kaneshiro, if he is really coming back, he is likely to take Chow’s original role instead; but I strongly felt that Tony should take back his original role and Takeshi take on Chow’s role instead.

Besides, Tony is a couple inches shorter than Chow Yun Fat and his ‘wife’ Lin Zhi Ling… Takeshi seemed like a better-matched couple with Lin.

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.
