Chinese superstar GE You has struck a wide-ranging five-year deal with Hong Kong film studio Emperor Motion Pictures Ltd.

Ge, who was in a trio of Christmas blockbusters last year including the EMP-backed 'Let the Bullets Fly', will develop and star in each of the three projects agreed under the deal. He also has the opportunity to produce and/or direct if he chooses.

The deal was announced at a glitzy ceremony in Hong Kong on Thursday (1 Dec 2011). EMP said that it expected to invest more than US$78 million in the slate. But neither Ge nor EMP revealed details of any specific projects.

"This partnership will help elevating the international standard of Chinese movies. My discussions with [EMP chairman] Dr. Yeung [Albert YEUNG] have given me a high level of confidence in my new roles, with the freedom that he allows me," said Ge.

"We all love watching Ge You who is a truly remarkable actor," said EMP's CEO Albert LEE. "Hopefully, we will be able to see other aspects of his talent through this new collaboration."
