Academy Award winning director Ang Lee has released details about his next project.  It's appears he's returning to Chinese-language filmmaking for this picture titled, "Lust, Caution" based on a 26-page short story by Chinese writer Eileen Chang about group of patriotic students who plot to assassinate the intelligence chief in the Japanese-backed Chinese government during the World War II era.

Tony Leung Chu-wai, who recently was named best actor at the Cannes Film Festival, and Chinese actress Joan Chen ("The Last Emperor") have joined the cast.  Other cast members include newcomer Tang Wei and Chinese-American pop star Leehom Wang.
