Chinese actor Li Chen recently revealed that he is soon to make his directorial debut.
As reported on Sina News, the actor, whose relationship with Fan Bingbing has taken centre stage since they announced the news two years ago, revealed that he is serious about making his first directorial effort, which is a movie that will revolve around the subject of military air force.

When asked if he would be casting his girlfriend in the movie, Li admitted that he hopes she would join, if there is a chance, although her recent Best Actress win at the San Sebastian Film Festival means that the “I Am Not Madame Bovary” star will be busier than ever.

“She is the best actress anyway…” he sighed, albeit jokingly.
However, when asked if he isn’t pressured by Fan’s commercial and critical success, Li responded that he has no such desire, and that his only hope is to be given the opportunity to star in good movies and portray good roles.
