Jackie and Zhang Yimou are co-producing a film adaptation of 2012 Nobel Laureate for Literature Mo Yan's book "Treasure Map"
His first book to be adapted for the screen was "Red Sorghum" (Zhang Yimou).
A location has been found for the treasure in the caves of Yan Zi Dong. The film will utilize heavy visual effects, including 3-D, to capture what the Nobel committee called Mo's "hallucinatory realism." An exciting cliff-face fight/action scene has been planned for the finale.
Filming will take place in Chongqing.
