Just one day after John Woo's long-anticipated big budget epic "Battle of Red Cliff" started shooting, news has come that Hong Kong's super star Chou Yun-Fat has been dropped from the star cast.

This is the second HK international super star who has for various reasons been made to leave the film production team following Tony Leung's earlier turn-down of another major cast in this film for "what it is said his incompetence in speaking proper mandarin Chinese".

Beijing Evening News reports it received an official phone call confirmation on Chou Yun-Fat's case from the film's production team on Sunday night.

The production team alleged that Chou Yun-Fat put forward "nearly one-hundred unreasonable demands", which they said "they are unable to tolerate". Meanwhile, they also alleged that Chou Yun-Fat is "far beyond the age of his role in the film" and they have got what they call "negative feedbacks from the public on the point".

It is reported that the film's production side expects to pick a younger face to replace Chou Yun-Fat, who in fact is an old friend of the blockbuster director John Woo. Chou Yun-Fat has been reported as one of the most expected top cast on John Woo's film crew list. The production side did not specify when a new face will be checked out.
