The Great Wall of China is one of the wonders of the world, it has taken hundreds of years to build and it is thousands of miles long. Yet the reasons for its existence vary from one historical record to another. However, this movie is offering us an alternative to keeping out rebels, looters and just about any other unsavory character living just the other side of the wall.
The Great Wall tells the story of an elite force making a valiant stand for humanity on the world’s most iconic structure. The first English-language production for Yimou is the largest film ever shot entirely in China.
The Great Wall will be available next year and it is directed by Zhang Yimou (Hero and House of Flying Daggers). The movie has an all star cast featuring Matt Damon, Jing Tian, Pedro Pascal, Willem Dafoe, Hanyu Zhang, Eddie Peng, Lu Han, Kenny Lin, Junkai Wang, Zheng Kai, Cheney Chen, Xuan Huang and Andy Lau.
