Tang Wei in new romance movie

Hong Kong - Tang Wei will return to the screen in a Hong Kong romance opposite Jacky Cheung, her first film since she was banned in China for starring in the spy thriller Lust, Caution (2007).

The Chinese actress plays a wilful single woman whose family arranges for her to date an electrical goods shop owner's laid-back son played by singer Cheung, says Ming Pao Daily News.

The film is written and will be directed by Ivy Ho, who won awards for her screenplays for Comrades, Almost A Love Story (1996) and July Rhapsody (2002).

Shooting starts next month, says the report.

Tang's skincare commercial was taken off the air in China last March and she was banned in the mainland media. But she has been appearing in public in China since October and now holds a Hong Kong passport.
