On Wednesday, after months of waiting, Sony Pictures has finally released the first Magnus Bane still from THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS: CITY OF BONES (check it out here) and today we have even more Godfrey Gao news.
Thanks to his twitter we know that Godfrey is filming a new TV series in Zurich/Switzerland right now. The Swiss newspaper 20 Minuten has published an article about Gao and the TV series and TMI Source has translated the most important passages for you.
Remembering Lichuan is a love story about the architect Lichuan (Gao), who grew up in Zurich, and a girl called Xiaoqiu (Jiao Junyan) who is from a suburb of Kunming. Shooting locations are China and Zurich. Xiaoqiu travels to Zurich to get to know her love’s home country. But Lichuan didn’t tell her that he used to be in hospital in Zurich. Dramatic scenes unfold as the truth is revealed.
Remembering Lichuan will be aired next year in China and is also supposed to be shown in Southeast Asia, Europe and America.
Godfrey about Zurich:
The scenery is beautiful. It’s no surprise that more and more Chinese tourists come to visit. [...] I can be myself here.
The only thing that he had to get used to was the cold; in the article he mentioned that he could no longer feel his feet. The film crew was surprised to have snow in Zurich because the TV series was originally set in summer, but they quickly changed the script to adjust to the local weather conditions.
You can have a look at a trailer (with English subtitles) for Remembering Lichuan:
