BEIJING, Jan. 28 (UPI) -- Chinese director Zhang Yimou has lined up 20,000 soldiers for extras in his latest film, "Autumn Remembrance."

With a price tag of $44 million, "Autumn" stands to be China's most expensive film ever, The Hollywood Reporter said Saturday.

Director Chen Kaige spent $30 million on his "Master of the Crimson Armor," the previous record-holder, and China's Oscar entry this year for best foreign-language film.

"Autumn Remembrance" will star Chow Yun-Fat, and talks are continuing to sign Gong Li, The Reporter said.

It's being co-produced by Bill Kong, who had a hand in producing Zhang's "House of Flying Daggers" and Ang Lee's "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon."
