Faye Invited to Star in ‘Rise of the Machine’

director-liu-zhenwei3According to an XK.CN article (18 Nov 2008), well-known director Liu Zhenwei (刘镇伟) has invited Faye Wong (王菲) to star in his upcoming film, Rise of the Machine (机器侠). Apparently, Liu was very impressed with Faye’s performance in Wong Kar-wai’s (王家衛) 2004 film, 2046, and feels that Faye has tremendous potential that has yet to be tapped. The article also states that Katie (陈家瑛 Chen Jiaying), Faye’s manager, told reporters on Nov 17 that Faye is painstakingly creating new songs and is in “a positive state of waiting for the right opportunity to resume her career.” Asked if Faye would accept Liu’s invitation, Katie said, “It depends on the circumstances.”

  1. This is awesome news. It’s like final confirmation that Faye Wong will indeed resume her career.

  2. I hope that’s what it means, but we won’t know for sure until we get further confirmation (or denial). But it sounds plausible. I have all my fingers and toes crossed that Faye will agree to the role and continue working on songs for her new album.

  3. Yes ….. Faye hope she will come back soon.
