25 March 2019 - Despite rumours that Fan Bingbing has been banned from acting for 3 years after her tax evasion scandal in Oct 2018, Fan Bingbing seems to be pressing ahead with her plans for an equally dramatic comeback.
On 15 March 2019, she shares a good movie on social media with fans and was also recently spotted in another video saying hello to her fans.
Fan Bingbing has completed filming for her comeback movie "她杀" (The Perfect Blue)[technically, if you do a direct translation, it should be "She Kills", but the director feels otherwise]
In the movie, she plays the female lead, Liu Mei, opposite male lead Huang Xuan. The cast is strong and includes other popular actresses: Xin Yulei, Wang Ziwen and Li Wei. The movie is directed by Cao Baoping.
This crime thriller tells the story of four girls, looking forward to their university graduation day when something happened along the way to wreak havoc in their otherwise peaceful lives.
The story is to be continued in the cinemas, scheduled for release this 2019. Rumours that Fan Bingbing's scenes will be deleted and replaced by Yang Mi turns out to be false.
