Li Yi Feng will be starring in Animal World 动物世界, a movie based from a Japanese manga series called Tobaku Mokushiroku Kaiji or Ultimate Survivor Kaiji. If you try to google the trailer, you’d stumble upon a weird clown reminiscent of Pennywise along with Michael Douglas, which is an odd mix to say the least. Zhou Dongyu also makes a special appearance.
There’s not much information on what the movie is about or why there’s a clown. What I know so far is that Li Yi Feng plays Zheng Kai Si and that he participates in a mysterious game on board a cruise ship so he can repay his debts. The participants use “rock, paper and scissors” as a prop to win the opponent’s star logo.
Confused yet? I guess this adds to the intrigue and buzz, and the promise of having major production value and amazing CGI gives it a Hollywood blockbuster feel.
