League of Gods

The new 3D martial arts movie Feng Shen Bang that will star Jet Li, Tony Leung and Shu Qi is scheduled to begin filming in September.

Feng Shen Bang (League of Gods), which will be co-directed by Wilson Yip and Koan Hui, is based on the 16th-century Chinese novel, often translated as The Investiture of the Gods. The story tells of how King Zhou of Shang (Tony Leung) becomes a tyrant due to the wiles of Daji (Shu Qi), a vixen spirit who is disguised as one of his concubines. After a series of battles involving mythological intervention, King Zhou of Shang is overthrown by King Wu of Zhou and his strategist Jiang Ziya (Jet Li).

With a budget of 300 million HKD, Feng Shen Bang is considered a comeback project for China Star Entertainment Group, a well-known film production company that hit an economic rut in 2005.

The cast of League of Gods also includes Huang Xiaoming as Erlang Shen, Angelababy as a mermaid, Louis Koo as Buddhist wisdom god Mahamayuri, Wen Zhang as Nezha, and Jacky Heung as Leizhenzi.
