25 Apr 2003 -- Yesterday was the last day to submit films for Cannes Film Festival and as expected, "2046" is not submitted. Furthermore, cinematographer Jean-Yves Escoffier who was working on "2046" died earlier this month of a heart seizure, age 52. Hopefully this will not affect the already shot part of the movie so they can use them in the future with a new cinematographer.

1 Apr 2003 -- Earlier reports suggests Wong Kar-Wai will make a rush delivery of his "2046" to this year's Cannes Film Festival. But according to news from an unidentified source, there is little hope for that, because, according to the Taiwanese representative of Wong's company, the filming has not ended and work on a lot of CG effects have not started yet. According to Sina.com, Leung Chiu-Wai has finished all scenes with Zhang Ziyi, and he knew nothing about his scenes with Maggie Cheung, Faye Wong and Lau Kar-ling, because he had not got the script yet. He said Zhang Ziyi was playing a dancer and he had some hot kissing scene with her.   Source: Monkeypeaches
