Other big movies to be coproduced by Huayi and CKF include Painted Skin Prequel, in 2019, and Onmyoji, next year.

The previous Painted Skin movies, released in 2008 and 2012, center on a bittersweet romance between a human and a fox.

Onmyoji, which is set in a fictional world where humans and ghosts coexist, is based on a cellphone game by the same name.

The game attracts more than 10 million players on average daily since it was released in September.

Chen Kun, the A-list actor who leads the cast in both Painted Skin Prequel and Mojin Returns, says China's rapidly evolving movie industry is making it very attractive to actors and actresses.

He says the lineup of the five movies, for example, shows that Chinese movie industry is increasing its budget and scale.
