4 October 2014 2:00 PM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Arclight Films’ Asian label, Easternlight Films, has picked up international rights to The Queens, directed by and starring Taiwanese singer and actress Annie Yi.

Produced by Beijing-based Desen International Media, the romantic comedy also stars Korean actress Song Hye Kyo and Chinese actress Vivian Wu. Chinese release is scheduled for November 7.

The film follows three cosmopolitan women, an actress, a PR specialist and a gallery manager, all wrestling with the ups and downs of their romantic lives. “We want to present the mystery, desires, sorrows and pain in urban relationships”” said Desen’s Ann An. “The motto for women from the film is ‘Don’t be a slave, and don’t be a queen, just be yourself’. The characters go through the transformation from ‘being a queen’ to purely ‘being themselves’.”

Also known by her Chinese name Yi Nengjing, Annie Yi starred in Hou Hsiao-hsien’s Good Men, Good Women (1995), Peter Greenaway’s 8 ½ Women (1999) and more recently »
