'The Haunting Lover' to Open at the End of July








The romantic horror film "The Haunting Lover" ("Deng Zhe Ni Hui Lai") starring Li Xiaolu and Vanness Wu will hit Chinese mainland cinemas at the end of this month, the Beijing Youth Daily reports.
The film is inspired by an urban legend from Singapore that prevailed in Southeast Asia during the 1930s. A young man (Vanness Wu) suddenly disappears, and his girlfriend (Li Xiaolu) is found dead in her bathtub. The police investigation turns vain, and the man and his girlfriend seem to both appear again 10 years later.

Taiwan-based actor Vanness Wu, an American-born Chinese, rose to fame after starring in the 2001 TV hit "Meteor Garden." He has also appeared in such films as "Star Runner" (2003) and "Kung Fu Fighter" (2007).

Mainland actress Li Xiaolu, also known as Lu Lu, starred in such films as "One Night in Supermarket" (2009) and "Blood Brothers" (2007).

"The Haunting Lover" is helmed by Hong Kong director Ken Yip.
