The masses may not be familiar with the name of Zhou Xianyang, but the director has recently been able to fill his cast with A-list actors and directors. In his latest crime flick "Night Fall," Ang Lee and Tian Zhuangzhuang both appear in cameo roles, reports.

As a representative figure of the fifth generation of China's directors, Tian Zhuangzhuang said frankly in a previous interview that he barely knew Zhou before he took the role as a prison officer, explaining why he accepted the role in an interview. "I saw something new in his script. The movie keeps the local culture. In the meantime, it brings unique elements to audiences."

Ang Lee's character hasn't been revealed yet. The friendship between Lee and Zhou starred in 2007 when Zhou worked as an assistant under Lee for "Lust, Caution."

The movie featured Nick Cheung and Simon Yam, both are winners of Hong Kong Film Awards' Best Actor prize. Cheung portrays an innocent prisoner who seeks revenge after he was released. While Yam plays the police officer trying to catch him.

The release date of the movie has yet to be confirmed.
