Upcoming movie SAVING  GENERAL  YANG  /  YANG  WARRIOR /  THE  YANG  CLAN.

Legenda ini sebelumnya telah diangkat ke layang kaca maupun ke layar lebar.
Aktor  yg  pernah terlibat  dalam  cerita  legenda  ini  antara  lain  Chow Yun Fat, Andy  Lau, Tony Leung.

Aku ngambil dari sumber berbahasa Inggris utk di FI ini.

Welcome dan terbuka untuk berdiskusi seputar movie  dan  karakter2  dalam movie ini.
Tapi harap tidak melecehkan aktor lain  yg bukan idolanya.
Seorang aktor menyukai tantangan melalui karakter yang dimainkannya untuk mengembangkan karirnya.
So, dukunglah aktor masing2 dengan  sportif.
:D

===========================================================================

The historical folk legend of the Yang’s Clan and the seven brothers (and their awesome General Daddy) who set out for war on behalf of the Song Dynasty against its enemies, and only one brother returned, has been made into movies and dramas so many times I have lost count. The story extols family honor and patriotic virtue of the Yang’s Clan and their willingness to give their lives for their Emperor.



The drama adaptations tends to focus on the younger brothers more, with Sixth Brother usually the lead since he’s the only one to return from the battle, though other versions have chosen to focus on Fourth Brother. I adore this story since I watched it as a kid and totally swooned over the brothers and their camaraderie and general awesomeness – they use spears as weapons, each has his own OTP, they fight all the time just for fun, they always have each other’s back. And it spawned a very famous proverb – “The Yang’s Clan, 7 sons left, 1 son returned.”

Cast Confirmed for Upcoming HK/C Movie The Yang’s Clan Including Vic Zhou, Wu Zun, Louis Koo, and Ekin Cheng

Famed HK-producer-director-actor Bakmin Wong’s upcoming epic movie-version of The Yang’s Clan (杨家将) has just announced the seven lead actors playing the famed seven brothers of historical lore.




 [yawn]

Only two of the actors have been confirmed to play a certain brother (Louis Koo as Big Brother and Wu Zun as Sixth Brother), but I can pretty much guess which brother the other five leads will be playing. Ekin Cheng I suspect is Second Brother, Raymond Lam is likely Third Brother, Vic Zhou could play Fourth Brother in his sleep (OMG the angst), Deng Cao would be perfect as stoic Fifth Brother, and Feng Shao Feng as playful Seventh Brother. Okay, you can start screaming now folks, because that above, is the epic cast for the upcoming The Yang’s Clan movie.

The confirmed cast also includes wuxia veteran Adam Cheng as the all-powerful and wise Daddy Yang. This movie version will supposedly center around the seven brothers’ rescue of Daddy Yang, likely from evil varmints of some invading nation. The poster above was made by C-netizens at Baidu, and at the end of the cast list naming each of the guys I listed above is this awesome tagline “and a bunch of Yang’s wives, too.” Mwahahaha, yup, don’t forget the wifeys. The movie starts filming this August, likely scheduled for a Fall 2012 release.

Vic Zhou Prepares for his First Martial Arts Role in the Upcoming The Yang’s Clan Movie



This news article I’m about to summarize is pretty inane, but hidden in the sheer asinine text is one important fact – the mainstream TW-newspapers are beginning to report on Vic Zhou and Wu Zun preparing for their roles in the upcoming HK/C martial arts movie The Yang’s Clan (which I posted about here). I’m always worried that early casting reports, which remain subject to the actor actually committing to it. To hear that Vic is actually working out for his first martial arts role, which further confirms his involvement, fills my heart with glee.

Though I do have to echo some witty Baiduers who noted the pointlessness of working out for period role since all that muscle is usually covered up in layers of robes and/or armor. Uhm, tell that to Aaron Kwok, who reinvented the hot shirtless warrior image for The Storm Riders over a decade ago, which was the only good thing about that movie.



The article notes that movie goers love seeing bromances and/or male rivalries on screen, and with the new generation of TW-leading men making their transition to the movies (such as Ethan Ruan in the upcoming The Flying Guillotine, Wu Zun for 14 Blades, The Kingdom, and now The Yang’s Clan), the audience is sure to get their fill of their favorite stars on the big screen. The articles goes on to quote Vic’s manager as saying that Vic has been traveling with free weights and works out during his spare time, in preparation of a very physcial role to come as one of the Yang brothers who goes to war.

The lamest comment in the entire article is without a doubt the following gem, which I paraphrase – while Vic can hardly be expected to get muscles as large as Wu Zun (see example of said muscle above), he’s young enough that some working out will net him a toned physique that will carry plenty of selling points. ROFLMHO – TW-media, it pains me to read you guys attempting (un)insightful commentary.

Zaizai trains horse-riding, painful peeled skin on the buttock

June 30, 2011
Source : Taiwan Apple http://tw.nextmedia....ssueID/20110630
Translated by sytwo at VIC

Zai Zai (Vic Chou) has non-stop filming contracts and his new movie (Yang Warrior) which starts filming in August requires him to ride a horse. He uses his spare time to train horse-riding, but it caused peeled skin on the buttock which caused him great pain yet he was too embarrassed to say it out.

Zai Zai and Ella is filming Director Chu Yen Ping’s new movie, "Matchmade in Heaven," and during a media interview he revealed that in order to train horse-riding, his skin became “torn and peeled”. When he was pressed to divulge where the peeled skin was, he confessed with embarrassment that it was the buttock skin and that he could only endure the pain with difficulty.

Film producer of the movie Qiu Kuan praised Zaizai’s acting, but Qiu have not seen Zai Zai’s TV version "Black and White". Zai Zai humorously replied : "Then you can see the film version." But in the film version one would not be able to see Zaizai.

Casting Confirmed For the Yang’s Clan Movie with Vic Zhou as 4th Brother and Wu Zun as 6th Brother



Latest news from Weibo states that casting of the Yang’s brothers have been finalized. I posted here about the actors playing one of the seven brothers in the upcoming epic HK/C movie The Yang’s Clan (一门忠烈之杨家将), but it hadn’t yet been finalized which actor played which brother (with the exception of Wu Zun getting Liu Lang Sixth brother, and Louis Koo getting Da Lang First brother).

In addition to Wu Zun and Louis, the rest of the cast will go like this: Ekin Cheng as Er Lang Secondbrother , Feng Shao Feng as San Lang Third brother, Vic Zhou as Si Lang Fourth brother (booyah, just like I predicted), Raymond Lam as Wu Lang Fifth brother, and newcomer Fu Xin Bo as Ci Lang Seventh brother.

This is me here crying tears of joy. My Zai Zai as Si Lang? There is a drama god up there who loves me. Below I have character descriptions for those who are not familiar with this folktale. Oh, and the picture above is not the official poster, just fans having fun with photoshop.



N.B. :

Artikel di atas belum bisa dipercaya 100 % kebenarannya, sampai ada konfirmasi resmi dari manajemen.

Main personality of 7 brothers



1. Da Lang – Both patriotic and tactically brilliant.

2. Er Lang – Thoughtful and precise, a master at the study of stragetic text.

3. San Lang – Impetuous yet always willing to assist others.

4. Si Lang – Handsome yet born with a weaker constitution, has a rebellious personality.

5. Wu Lang – Not interest in war, obsessed with studying martial arts.

6. Liu Lang – Not very talkative, but very concerned with war matters. All the rewards he earns in battle he gives away to his troops, lives very simply.

7. Ci Lang – The most spoiled, happy and outgoing, always looking for interesting and fun things.

Wuxia veteran Adam Cheng will be playing Daddy Yang. Apparently the movie is purely focused on the brothers going to war to save Daddy Yang, so I’m not sure if we’ll get any Yang wives in it. Boo, I do love the love stories in the Yang’s clan. The director for this movie will be HK-director Ronny Yu, who directed The Bride With White Hair with Leslie Cheung and Bridgette Lin, Jet Li‘s Fearless, and even did the Hollywood movie Freddy v. Jason.

Since this movie is about the rescue of Daddy Yang and not the Battle at Golden Beach (where we get the famed saying that 7 brothers went to war and 1 came home), I’m expecting everyone to live and hopefully gimme a sequel or more. There is so much story to tell, and with such a star-studded cast I’m totally fangirling for more already.
