The director of Kevin Spacey's Chinese production Inseparable says the film has cleared the country's censors and its financial backers are discussing release dates with local distributors.
Chinese-American director Dayyan Eng said the US star enjoyed his shoot in the southern Chinese city Guangzhou. Eng says the two-time Oscar winner explored the city's restaurants and took him and other crew members to them.
In Inseparable, Spacey plays an American expat who befriends a Chinese man bogged down by work and marital problems, played by Chinese-American actor Daniel Wu.
By choosing a Chinese-funded production, Spacey gains exposure to the booming Chinese market by avoiding import quotas imposed on American productions.
