What the Fuqua?!
Following his 2007 action-thriller Shooter
, director Antoine Fuqua’s name has been attached to a variety of projects including an upcoming Tupac biopic. Word out today
that Fuqua has attached himself to a 200 yuan (that’s roughly $30 million) Chinese-language historical epic about a Tang Dynasty emperor and imperial consort Yang Guidei, one of the four famed beauties of ancient China. Considering China’s huge market, do you think this is a smart move by Fuqua to bring the story to an international stage or a massive risk that could jeopardize his future as a filmmaker? --Derrick Deane
