The 24 episode, 1982 TV drama "Shanghai Beach"
, staring the big chinese names Chow Yun-Fat and Gigi Zhao, has moved and impressed many chinese audiences in the past two decades.
A new version of the drama, led by Hong Kong popular lady killer Daniel Wu and Taiwan actress Alyssa Chia, is sheduled to start shooting before the end of this year.
Although there are already many versions of it, including the 1995 film version starring Leslie Cheung and Andy Lau, none of them received a good response as the original.
Alyssa Chia will play the female lead Feng Cheng Cheng, and Daniel will replaced Chow Yun-Fat as Xu Wenqiang.
