Perfect Village released stills from four movies in production, including Zhang's Shadow and sci-fi action movie Bleeding Steel, starring Jackie Chan, and hacker-themed thriller, Reborn.

Perfect Village Entertainment's president and CEO, Ellen Eliasoph, reveals that Zhang decided to direct Shadow around a few years ago after he read the script.

She says this new epic, which stars Deng Chao, Sun Li, Zheng Kai, Guan Xiaotong and Wang Qianyuan, is in the final month of filming.

Reborn stars Chinese singer-actor Han Geng and Chinese-British actor Rhydian Vaughan, and Japanese superstar Tomohisa Yamashita makes his first appearance in a Chinese movie.

The company also announced it has begun pre-production on a live-action animated feature that will bring Hero Dog, the protagonist of the hit television series of the same name, together with the iconic American cat Garfield.

When Hero Dog Meets Garfield is scheduled to start filming in January 2018.
