After taking the helm for the upcoming comedy thriller "Design of Death", which is due to hit cinemas on April 28, director Guan Hu, alongside lead actors Huang Bo, Liu Ye and Zhang Hanyu announced at a press conference, held yesterday in Beijing, that his next project, "The Chef, The Actor, The Scoundrel" is due to begin filming, reports.

Set in Beijing during World War II, the story revolves around a chef, an actor and a scoundrel, portrayed by Huang Bo, Liu Ye and Zhang Hanyu respectively. The three men come across one another in the epidemic-plagued city, leading to an absurd and hilarious drama.

Huang, Liu and Zhang, all of whom have previously received Golden Horse Awards, are set to cooperate with one another for the first time not only as actors but also as film investors, alongside director Guan Hu.

Mainland actors Liang Jing, Wang Xun and Japanese sweetheart Chie Tanaka will support the leading cast.

The film will be released during the New Year period of 2013.
