BEIJING (China Daily Show) — In an effort to rake in international film profits, SARFT has announced its intent to produce the most expensive film of all time.
The sure-fire blockbuster, to be directed by legendary Chinese director, Zhang Yimou, will star “all of China’s most famous actors, Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Tom Cruise, you name it,” an optimistic SARFT spokesperson said Tuesday in a press conference, and will cost “exactly $1.3 billion dollars.”
The script has yet to be penned, but migrant workers in Hebei province are already constructing the world’s largest 3D “CHIMAX” movie screen, which spans the entire length of the Great Wall of China. Premier ceremonies will take place on the moon.
Zhang Yimou will direct the film while in orbit aboard the rocket, Shenzhen IV, using the world’s largest megaphone.
“This can show our power and techknowledge to the world!” said lunar gaffer, Wai Xingren.
Sources close to the production have leaked the film’s working title: The Monkey King.
