My journey through the world of writing and everything that lies in between…

It’s Becoming a Movie!!

Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, one of my favorite books EVER (and one of the choices in my 200th post giveaway) is going to be made into a movie!! Ziyi Zhang (known for her role as Sayuri/Chiyo in Memoirs of a Geisha) will be playing Lily, the main character.

I’m thinking about this and remembering the footbinding scenes in the novel. I’m wondering how graphic it will be in the movie. I know when I read it, it was cringe worthy and  it made me queasy–I’m sure it’s going to be quite painful to watch.

Anyway it probably won’t come out until late 2010 or sometime in 2011…but still, it’s going to be a movie! *Does happy dance* I’ll be keeping an eye out for the trailer in the coming months.

It may not be as excellent as the book, but I’m still going to be seeing this movie opening night–whenever that is–guaranteed 🙂

  1. Ooh, I need to read this book! I’ve had it on my TBR shelf for years!

    • Yes! You MUST read it 🙂 I’ve read it three or four times already–I think I’ve actually worn my copy out as the binding is starting to come apart.

  2. :O It has Ziyi Zhang? I have to see it.

    I have to read the book too now 🙂

  3. I loved Memoirs of a Geisha! Can’t wait to see this!

  4. Ooo that sounds good!

  5. You never know, the movie might be as good. 🙂 The title is intriguing. It sounds like a really interesting book.

  6. Oh man, I read that book when I first came to Japan. It’s so beautiful, sad, and creepy, and yet uplifting at the exact same time! I’d be really excited to see it in a movie! I wonder who’s playing her opposite?

  7. I bookmarked this on Goodreads!! 🙂

  8. That’s great news. It was a beautiful book and the movie will probably make me cry.
