Making a costume wushu film is never easy. First of all, of course, you need a huge costume department, then you need to train your actors in basic martial arts skills and once in a while you need to buy a hill to shoot on - literally. Award-winning director Tsui Hark has just wrapped up shooting on his wushu movie Seven Swords, which is scheduled for a summer release. The film's lead, Leon Lai Ming, told CitySeen Tsui actually bought a hill in Tianshan, Xinjiang , so he could build a town as a set for the movie. '[Tsui] had to negotiate with the government there and allow it to use the place as a tourist spot after shooting,' Lai said. Meanwhile, Charlie Young Choi-nei, who is the female lead, said making her first martial arts film was tough. 'There was this scene in which I had to squat, which is a basic wushu pose, but kung fu master Lau Kar-leung needed me to practise it for a week before we shot it so that I would be convincing as my character, who has practised wushu for a long time.' With so much effort going in to Seven Swords, it sounds like a movie not to be missed.
