Director Tsui Hark (L2), and cast members Zhang Yuqi (L), Kwai Lun-Mei (R), and Zhou Xun attend the launch ceremony of their film, "Nv Ren Bu Huai" ("Women Aren't Bad"), in Beijing on Tuesday, January 8, 2008.
Hong Kong director Tsui Hark was in Beijing on Tuesday to kick off the filming for his new three-woman movie.
The three leading actresses -- Zhou Xun, Zhang Yuqi and Kwai Lun-Mei -- also attended the film's launch party, clad in hippie outfits.
"Nv Ren Bu Huai" ("Women Aren't Bad"), which is yet to receive an official English title, is about three modern women living iconoclastic lifestyles.
The film is considered a follow-up to Tsui's 1986 hit, "Peking Opera Blues," which also features three female characters, played by now-seasoned actresses Brigitte Lin, Cherie Chung, and Sally Yeh.
