Andy Lau, Gong Li In “Women” Remake

Andy Lau and Gong Li will star in a $5 million Chinese remake of Nancy Meyers’ romantic comedy “What Women Want” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Gong, who beat out Fan Bingbing for the role, will play the creative director at a Beijing advertising firm run by a chauvinistic (and mind-reading) Lau.

Chen Daming directs from a script he adapted from Meyers’ 2000 film which starred Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt.

Shooting kicks off this week in the central business district of Beijing for release next February.
