“I am so pleased to cooperate with Jiang Wen, one of the most outstanding filmmakers and actors in China, on this movie,” said Armani, adding, “I have always been fascinated by the Eastern metropolis of Shanghai, for its unique style and charm, from the past to the future, connecting the East and the West.”
