Director Feng Xiaogang [CRI]

Many people are guessing what will be the director Feng Xiaogang's next project following the successes of his two films, "Aftershock" (Yu Zhen) and "If You Are The One 2" (Fei Cheng Wu Rao 2). Wang Zhonglei, president of Huayi Brothers, confirmed that it will be a tragic war story about the bombing in Chongqing occurring 70 years ago.

During an interview, Wang said that currently they are working on the screenplay of the film which Feng will direct. The film will be one of the five films that Feng works on together with Huayi according to a contract they signed earlier this year.

"The focus won't be on war scenes, but rather will be the story from ordinary people's point of view, which is Feng's unique way to narrate a story."

The Bombing of Chongqing occurred from 1938 to 1943. The Japanese army dropped over 11,500 bombs on the Chinese city Chongqing. More than 10,000 Chinese civilians were killed during the bombing.
