Top Chinese movie director Zhang Yimou, who masterminded the Beijing Olympics opening ceremony, is planning a film to mark the 60th anniversary of the founding of Communist China, state press said.
A script for the movie that will commemorate the 1949 founding of new China is currently being worked out, Zhang told Xinhua news agency on the sidelines of the nation's annual parliamentary session, at which he is a delegate.
Xinhua did not give any other details on the planned film.
As well as directing the spectacular 2008 Games opening ceremony, Zhang is also known for blockbusters such as "Hero" and the "House of Flying Daggers," and has been nominated three times for an Oscar for best foreign film.
He told Xinhua he is also mulling an invitation to orchestrate a fireworks display for China's October 1 National Day festivities, which will include a grand military parade on Tiananmen Square.
