Asian actress Maggie Q has replaced "disgraced" star Tang Wei as the lead in Chinese director Tian Zhuangzhuang's The Warrior and the Wolf.
Q takes over for Wei, who had to vacate the role after having been banned from Chinese screens in the wake of her raunchy film, Lust, Caution. Wei was selected among more than 10,000 actresses for that role, which appears to be torpedoing her career. Her print ads and skincare television commercials have also been pulled.
The Warrior and the Wolf is a big budget combat epic about two warriors toiling in ancient China. It's currently shooting in Xinjiang, with a 2009 release date in its sights.
