New movie version of The Bride With White Hair story

One of my favorite Hong Kong films from the 1990's is The Bride With White Hair. The director, Ronny Yu, took inspiration from Francis Ford Coppola's Dracula and tried to keep all of the special effects in camera. The new version of the story is called The White Haired Witch From Lunar Kingdom and it stars Fan Bing Bing. Comes out in April. One of my favorite Hong Kong directors, Tsui Hark is credited with artistic director.
