"Lust, Caution" star Tang Wei will make a return to the silver screen with top singer-actor Jacky Cheung in a new romantic drama entitled "Crossing Hennessy".

It seems the actress has been given the green-light to appear again in films one year after her disappearance from motion pictures following her performance in the spy thriller "Lust, Caution".

This time the actress will play in the upcoming "Crossing Hennessy" a quiet and wilful "next-door-girl" opposite Jacky Cheung, who plays a kind but laid-back electrical goods shop owner.

The film, which is scheduled to start shootting in March, tells the story of the two who are set up on a blind date by well-meaning relatives, despite the fact that they both have somebody else on their minds. Though the chemistry doesn't light up, the friendship grows unexpectedly between the two.

Tang Wei told the media that the humour-filled play will be refreshing to audiences.

Director Ivy Ho praised Tang Wei's good Cantonese language ability and believes she can be successful in this portrayal.

The actress refused to comment on "Lust, Caution", saying "I've had enough of all that". Tang revealed that she would focus on the future and her new role, the Chongqing Morning Post reports.

Many netizens have voiced their support for Tang Wei's return. They speak highly of her unaffected acting style and are looking forward to more new acting roles from the actress.

The film will start shooting this March. It also marks Cheung's first major leading role since Peter Chan's musical "Perhaps Love" in 2005.
