One of China's most famous star couples want their wedding to feel like a romantic movie. Tony Leung and Carina Lau have invited award-winning director Wong Kar-Wai to help them work out their wedding details.
Wong, the best director at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival, will be the chief curator for Leung and Lau's much-discussed wedding in October, the Oriental Morning Post reported Monday.
Wong's 2004 film "2046" won Tony Leung a best actor award at the Hong Kong Film Awards. He is also a long-time friend of the couple.
Art director William Chang, who took part in almost every film by Wong, has been invited to work with him again, the report says. Chang will be responsible for designing Lau's wedding gowns and ensuring that the wedding is "visually stunning."
Tony Leung, 46, and Carina Lau, 42, have been dating for nearly 20 years. Reports about their wedding plans have been making headlines since they began sending out invitations last month. Yet the couple has kept the date and other details under wraps.
Rumors suggest that a lavish, star-studded wedding will be held in October, but others say it's actually scheduled for this month.
