According to The Hollywood Reporter, Oscar winner Ang Lee will work again with longtime collaborator James Schamus of Focus Features to make the WWII-era spy thriller, Lust, Caution. Set in Shanghai, the Chinese-language feature is being written by Wang Hui-Ling, the screenwriter who co-wrote Lee's Eat Drink Man Woman and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The movie is being adapted from a short story by the late Chinese author Eileen Chang. Lee and Schamus have collaborated on nine films together so far, with Brokeback Mountain serving as Focus Features' all-time top-grossing film. No word yet on the plot details of this espionage movie, but I already thrill to the plot intrigues, romance, set design, and period costumes that will be under Lee's assured directorial vision.
