Academy Award winner Kevin Spacey will star in ‘Inseparable,' marking the first time a Hollywood star has acted in a Chinese production.
Directed and written by Dayyan Eng, the film co-stars Daniel Wu ( Overheard, Shinjuku Incident) and Beibi Gong ( The Detective 2, Waiting Alone). The Beijing-based American director's film Waiting Alone won Best First Feature at the 2005 Beijing Film Festival and his short "Bus 44," won awards at Venice and Sundance.
Inseparable follows a young troubled Chinese engineer encounters with a mysterious American expat who changes his life. The film will be shot in Mandarin and English.
Production begins in southern China this month. Producers include XSEL, Xinhua Media Entertainment, Colordance Pictures, Fantawild Pictures, and Spacey's Trigger Street Productions.
Spacey, the artistic director of The Old Vic Theatre in London, stars in the upcoming film Casino Jack, portraying disgraced Washington power broker Jack Abramoff, and the comedy Father of Invention.
