John Savage to appear in Chinese film

Actor cast in Zhen Zhong's 'Gasp' comedy

BEIJING — John Savage will appear in Chinese laffer “Gasp” from scribe-turned-director Zhen Zhong.

Savage plays a frustrated businessman who ends up in Beijing looking for a gullible Chinese investor, played by local star Ge You (“The Banquet”).

Other cast include rising Hong Kong star Kelly Lin, Taiwan’s Chen Bolin (“Kung Fu Dunk”) and China’s Liu Hua (“Crazy Stone”).

Coin for the $6 million-budget pic comes from Beijing-based Shengshi Huarui Film Investment, part of cinema circuit New Film Assn., and Zhengtian Media.

“Gasp” is due for submission to China’s censors in March and is expected to go on the festival round in the spring before opening theatrically in China in summer.
