Angelababy cast as leading lady of "Ferryman"

28 Jul - After much speculation, it was finally revealed that mainland actress Angelababy has been cast in the upcoming Wong Kar Wai produced film, "Ferryman".

According to Tencent Entertainment, the actress was recently photographed filming with Hong Kong actor Tony Leung, who plays the movie lead.

The two of them were filming on the streets of Shanghai at 2am. Tony was seen carrying a jacket over his shoulder, while a more demure looking Angelababy kept her head down.

Previously, a lot of rumours had gone around about a possible casting of Korean actress Jun Ji-hyun as the love interest for Tony Leung. However, it had since been debunked by both parties, especially after Jun announced her temporary retirement from showbiz due to her pregnancy.

"Ferrymen" is a comedy film written and directed by Zhang Jiajia, the original author of the short story from his "I Belonged To You" anthology.

In addition to Tony and Angelababy, the movie also stars Takeshi Kaneshiro.
