Chinese Remake of Miho Nakayama’s Love Letter in the Making

Ooo, another Chinese adaptation of Japanese goodies. The classic story and highly rated Japanese movie, Love Letter, which hit theaters in 1995 and became a box-office hit will get a Chinese film remake. No names has been dropped yet either in directing or casting. Producing the movie will be under Dreams of the Dragon Pictures, which also produced The Man Behind the Courtyard House, Cloud Atlas, and Out of Control. I personally haven’t seen this movie before so can’t even throw out a few names for casting potentials.

Which actors do you think will fit the characters?

    Aww, I loved this movie. Really hyper romantic but understated at the same time. But it really has the 90s nostalgia factor now, so I wonder how they’re going to do it.

    this movie is absolutely sacred to me. absolutely petrified (also morbidly curious) about what they’re going to do with it. shunji iwai has a very distinct, understated storytelling style that can’t be replicated.

    Such beautiful actors. I used to think takashi was really good looking although I never watched anything with him in it. Looking back he has such a baby face though. Still beautiful but so boyish.
