Opening in Hong Kong this April is Wilson Yip’s A Chinese Fairytale, his reboot of A Chinese Ghost Story. The trailer just made its way online.
“Ning is a tax collector who spends a night in a supposedly haunted villa. Instead of obviously grotesque creatures, Ning meets an enchanting maiden named Sian. But Sian is a ghost bound to the netherworld, and worse, her master is a soul-sucking demon with an extremely long tongue! Ning is slated to become the demon’s next meal, but some humanity remaining in Sian compels her to keep him alive. Romance blossoms, and Ning resolves to help Sian. He even enlists the aid of a Taoist master to save Sian and vanquish the evil demon. But even if the duo succeeds, everlasting love may be only a fantasy.”
