Filmmaker Dennie Gordon has begun production on a Chinese language production of My Lucky Star, the prequel to the Chinese blockbuster Sophie's Revenge. The film is presented by Bona Entertainment and is produced by Ling Lucas, Beaver Kwei, Second Chan, William Cheng and stars Zhang Ziyi, who is joined by Chinese singer and star Wang Leehom. The Production Designer is Second Chan with Armando Salas serving as DP. Gordon developed the romantic comedy with Beaver Kwei, Amy Snow and Huang Hai.

My Lucky Star is an exotic multi city romance containing elements of mistaken identity and an international crime caper that takes Zhang Ziyi, reprising her role as Sophie, on a glamorous adventure from Beijing to Singapore to Hong Kong and Macau.

“I am thrilled to be working on 'My Lucky Star' and to have the great fortune to be working with some of the most creative and forward-thinking talents in the business,” stated Gordon. "We are doing something new and very exciting, where a specific Hollywood style is brought to a Chinese feature."

Zhang Ziyi is best known to American audiences for her starring roles in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, House of Flying Daggers, Memoirs of a Geisha, and Hero. She can also be seen in the soon-to-be-released critically-acclaimed Dangerous Liaisons directed by Hur Jin Ho and eagerly-anticipated martial arts epic Grand Masters from Wong Kar-Wai.

Wang Leehom is a multi-million album-selling Chinese-American pop star and one of the hottest names in Chinese music today. He is also an acclaimed actor who has starred in the Golden Lion Award-winning Lust, Caution from Ang Lee, Little Big Soldier opposite Jackie Chan, and the self-written and directed Love in Disguise.

Gordon’s previous credits include multiple episodes of such critically acclaimed series as "30 Rock" and "The Office" and won a DGA Award for HBO’s "Tracey Takes On". She has also directed the feature films Joe Dirt, New York Minute and What a Girl Wants.

Gordon is the first American woman to direct a feature for the domestic market in China.
