Red Flag is about one of China’s most powerful pirates in early 19th century.
MAGGIE Q (pic), the American actress born to a Vietnamese mother, will play feared Chinese pirate Ching Shih in a biopic set to air as a miniseries, according to Deadline.com.
Titled Red Flag, it is set in the early 1800s and centres on a beautiful young Chinese prostitute who goes on to master manipulation, becoming one of the country’s most powerful pirates. With 1,500 ships and 100,000 men, she controlled the South China Sea.
While Maggie Q’s previous major project, Nikita, ended in 2013, the actress will soon be seen in Divergent, adapting Veronica Roth’s literary saga. The film, along the lines of The Hunger Games, will also star Shailene Woodley, Theo James and Kate Winslet. – AFP Relaxnews
