Invite them to shoot movies in China with good & worthy THEMES which should include both internationally popular & nationally featured. The most important of all, no matter what themes they are, they should genuinely link to reality or at least reflect our genuine preference in life attitude, even if for science fiction movies. China will surly need shoot move science fiction movies with its own features.

Just look what happened to Zhao Wei, when she tried to pick actor based on only professional skills?
Politics have too big influence in China's movie industry. Perhaps not majority, but neverthless big part of international movie professionals really do not want, or are denied to work in China, based on their political stance toward China-related issues that have nothing to do with film making.

We heard director Zhang Yimou's new movie 'The Great Wall' sounds a total disaster in press for its ...
The storyline was too short, emotionally flat and geographically limited . Man earns stripes shooting serpents at wall after sacrificing amazonian oriental women. The end.
Please stop everything in the industry now and think hard again what you're trying to do. So far, throwing good money away and leaving disbelieving dissatisfaction in the audience. Open the analysis with the one question never asked: 'what is the global paying viewer today?' What, not who.

For Chinese directors to make globally acclaimed movies like Hollywood blockbusters, there are some combined elements cannot be missed- some unique but popular themes which not too Chinese or western still it appeals to both national or international audiences; Next would be a very professional team of production could include at least a few top ones in the industry, maybe a world-class photographer or producer; The most important part of a successful movie might be its leading roles. It's interesting that I would personally like to see a movie starring by a well-known Chinese actress & a Hollywood actor, say Hsu Chi vs. Brat Pitt. That'll be interesting right?
