Li Chen, Wang Qianyuan, Ora Yang Caiyu and the cast of Seven Days 七日生 have gathered in Las Vegas on May 29th to begin filming, and even with everybody stateside, it’s cool how they still did the whole ritual to pray for the success of the drama.
I won’t be surprised if this does turn out to be a success because it has a unique premise as far as Chinese dramas go. In the novel, the hero finds himself in a situation where he has to save an entire bus of hostages, all while partnering up with the quick-witted heroine who has an agenda of her own. There seems to be no room for romance between them as the main reason the hero gets caught in the ordeal in the first place is to save his girlfriend who’s been kidnapped.
Now there have been a lot of crime thrillers lately, but certainly not one like this yet unless we’re talking Hollywood, then I can’t help but think of the 1994 movie Speed. That was one helluva movie.
