Zhang Yimou

Chinese auteur Zhang Yimou's latest has, indeed, found a "Home."

Sony Pictures Classics has acquired all rights in North America, Latin America, Australia and New Zealand to Zhang's "Coming Home." A 20th-century-spanning romantic drama about a Chinese dissident, the film stars Gong Li and Chen Daoming, and is currently in post-production.

Produced by Bill Kong and Zhang Zhao, "Coming Home" will be the 12th collaboration between Sony Classics and Zhang Yimou, beginning with 1991's "Raise the Red Lantern" and including "House of Flying Daggers," "Curse of the Golden Flower" and "Shanghai Triad."

Primary financier LeVision Pictures will handle distribution in China. A master stylist of both martial arts and human drama films, Zhang Yimou's last movie was "The Flowers of War" in 2011.
