The Hong Kong directors Jacob Cheung Chi Leung and Ching Siu Tung produced large scale costume action mystery TANG DYNASTY'S MYSTIC MAP (DAI TONG YUN GEI TOH) held its first national recruitment for "Tung Lady Leung Girl" in Shenzhen.
The release company revealed that this recruitment will be national as the company had three male and female characters to fulfill young men and women's dream of performing. At the event Macau government honored athlete, the first wushu world champion and the release company CEO Li Fei even through the media sincerely invited excellent athletes to make contact. She said that she had a lot of confidence in the future of "Tung Lady Leung Girl". This time she came as a retired athlete in hopes of recruiting excellent athletes to participate.
Cheung Chi Leung said that for this film he turned down many offers. "This movie is a mystery that begins in the Tang Dynasty historical background. Aside from DETECTIVE DEE AND THE MYSTERY OF THE PHANTOM FLAME (DIK YUN KIT ji TUNG TIN DAI GOK) in Hengidan, Tang Dynasty stories have not been often seen in the Mainland costume work. I have confidence in making MYSTIC MAP great and display a Tang Dynasty of my understanding to the audience. Hengdian Film and Television City is so rich with such grand yet detailed production locations and ample resources, I think it will be able to provide a very ideal foundation for us to make this movie great."
As for casting, the producer said that this film did not have any already determined casting issue. As long as applicants are 18 or older they can download the application at the official site http://huiyan.dtxjt.com. The recruitment judges will consist of the creators, famous film critics, experienced media personnel, well known entrepreneurs and many veteran sales experts. The entire recruitment will be strict and the results will be announced to the public.
At the launch ceremony, the organizer set up many recruitment segments. One of the coaches who participated in the 2008 Beijing Olympics opening ceremony was one of the earliest applicants.
