New collaboration with Chen Shi-Zheng
I’ve started working with director Chen Shi-Zheng on a reimagining of China’s most cherished love story, The Peony Pavilion, as a contemporary romantic thriller. Chen staged the highly acclaimed Lincoln Center production of Peony starring Qian Yi in 1999. He also directed my screenplay for Dark Matter (2007), starring Liu Ye and Meryl Streep. The project will be repped by CAA’s Beijing-based agent, Jonah Greenberg.
