Painted Skin — Huàpí
Painted Skin is a 2008 supernatural fantasy film directed by Gordon Chan, starring Donnie Yen, Chen Kun, Zhou Xun, Zhao Wei, Betty Sun and Qi Yuwu.
Director: Gordon Chan
Although the film is based partly on a supernatural premise, it is more of an action-romance than a horror film. Painted Skin is based, very loosely, on one of Pu Songling’s classic short stories in Strange Stories from a Chinese Studio.
The theme song of the film, Huà Xīn (畫心; Painted Heart), was performed by Jane Zhang.
In 2011, Gordon Chan announced that a sequel, Painted Skin 2, will be produced. There are news that Chen Kun, Zhou Xun, and Zhao Wei will be returning for the sequel except for Donnie Yen.
