Hong Kong director Jingle Ma thinks mainland actress Zhao Wei is perfect for the role of folk heroine Hua Mulan.

"Zhao Wei has the qualities necessary to cross-play," Ma told the Beijing Times on Tuesday at a press conference for the film "Mulan", where he announced the start of filming.

Previous media reports suggested that Zhang Ziyi, Michelle Yeoh and Liu Yifei had all been considered for Hua Mulan, a young girl from ancient China's Northern Dynasties, who joined an all-male army to fight the enemies in place of her ailing father.

But the role eventually went to Zhao Wei, whose notable works include "Red Cliff" and "Painted Skin".

The character Hua Mulan was popularized in the West by the 1998 animated Disney film "Mulan".

But director Ma thinks the Hollywood Mulan doesn't match his impression of the heroine. "Zhao Wei's appearance is closer to that in my imagination," Ma says.

Last year, Ma took the directing baton of "Mulan" from Stanley Tong, who was reportedly hoping Zhang Ziyi could play Mulan.

There has been no statement from the film's investors explaining the change in directors.

In the upcoming film, actor Chen Kun will play Mulan's lover. Child actress Xu Jiao will play the young Mulan, and Russian pop singer Vitas is set to make a cameo.

Chinese actress Zhao Wei's portrayal as folk heroine Mulan in the same-titled upcoming film "Mulan"





----------------------------

omg!!! I'm so excited! I've ALWAYS wanted Zhao Wei to be Mulan because I love her fightng skills in her movies (So Close, Warriors of Heaven & Earth, HZGG, Red Cliff). She is my favorite and most admired actress since forever! It's almost like a dream come true for Vicki to play as Mulan for me! Personally, I would love it if Takeshi Kaneshiro were to play Shang, but I guess it's okay since it's Chen Kun. I'm really looking forward to it.

Me too!

I think these pics can depict her style of Mulan!

From "Warriors of Heaven and Earth" - her armor/clothing style!


From "So Close" - her stance!
