David Barboza: Hollywood sees a future in China

From the New York Times:

Like the rest of U.S. industry, Hollywood has seen the future, and it is China. Some of the biggest movie studios are now scrambling onto the mainland and planning to invest more than $150 million over the next few years in China’s burgeoning film industry.

Walt Disney Pictures may even spend part of its legacy, with a plan for what some people involved say is a live-action martial-arts remake of “Snow White” that would be shot in China and replace the dwarfs with Shaolin monks. The director is expected to be Yuen Woo-Ping, the Chinese director and choreographer who arranged the fight scenes for Quentin Tarantino’s “Kill Bill” pictures as well as “Kung Fu Hustle” and the “Matrix” movies.
