The production company for the movie "Yang Guifei" released a batch of still photos featuring Japanese super star Shun Oguri just after the announcement of his marriage on March 14th, Mtime.com reports.
Oguri plays Yang Guifei's former husband. Yang is a famous beauty from ancient Chinese history. This is also the first time for Oguri to work in a costume drama. Chinese megestar Fan Bingbing will play Yang Guifei, and the movie is said to be a romantic epic war blockbuster.
"Yang Guifei" is a co-production between China and Japan. Production has unfortunately fallen on rough times because of director Jae-young Kwak who recently resigned from the production team. Although some reports say Tian Zhuangzhuang will take helm now that Kwak is out of the picture, the final decision has yet to be confirmed by the production company.
