Chow Yun-Fat in "Confucius" Biopic

Posted: March 11th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Chow Yun-Fat in "Confucius" BiopicSubmit Comment
Production Weekly is reporting that Chow Yun-Fat is set to star in the upcoming "Confucius" biopic, which is set to begin filming at the end of this month in Beijing.

Confucius was a famous Chinese philosopher, who was born Kong Qiu in 551 BC and died in 479 BC. He was the second son of a minor aristocratic family that had fallen from power and as a result, Confucius was orphaned as a child and grew up in relative poverty. A voracious reader, he educated himself, eventually becoming a private tutor for the sons of wealthy gentlemen.

Distressed by the division of China into fiercely competitive and often warring states, Confucius, like many other thinkers of his era, devoted much time to pondering ways to restore order to the chaotic world in which he lived. For a decade beginning when he was about 55, Confucius wandered through neighboring states, attempting to convince various rulers of his worthiness for political positions through which he could introduce his planned reforms. Confucius was able to gather a substantial number of students who devoted themselves to his school of thought. Though it has been described as a religion, Confucianism is more of a political and social philosophy based on humanism, rationality, education, and virtuous example.

Chow Yun-Fat is known for such films as "Hard Boiled," "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon," "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" and the upcoming "Dragonball Evolution."
