Mainland singer Li Yuchun, or Chris Li, and Taiwan singer Mavis Fan have confirmed they are starring in Tsui Hark's first 3-D film, "The Flying Swords of Dragon Gate" ("Long Men Fei Jia").

Chris Li will play a kung-fu master, as in her first film, "Bodyguards and Assassins" ("Shi Yue Wei Cheng"). That big-screen debut not only helped Li win nominations at the 29th Hong Kong Film Awards and the 30th Hundred Flowers Awards, but also helped her get the role in Tsui's movie.

Li plays a young girl who was born into a bandit family. Li says she sees herself in the character, "Like most of the '80s generation today, we want to decide our own lives, but we don't know what we want exactly."

Mavis Fan seldom appears on the big screen. She was nicknamed "Little Witch" when she started her singing career in the 1990s, as at that time, most of her songs were sweet melodies catering to children and young teens. In recent years, Fan turned to rock songs. Her character in the movie is described as a witch, because she always does evil things.

Besides Chris Li and Mavis Fan, Tsui Hark also gathered a star-studded cast, including Jet Li, Zhou Xun and Chen Kun.
