The release of Air Strike, a film starring Chinese actress Fan Bingbing and American star Bruce Willis, has been cancelled after Fan’s tax evasion case.
Xiao Feng, the film’s director, announced on Wednesday via his Weibo account that “It was time to let go, after eight years of work on the film”.
The war drama, which also starred American actor Adrien Brody, was set to premiere worldwide on October 26.
China’s State Administration of Taxation discovered that the actress had earned US$4.4m for her guest role in Air Strike. However, she only declared a third of that salary in taxable income - therefore avoiding about US$1.1m in taxes through the use of a ’Yin-Yang contract’, a fraudulent dual contract system which facilitates tax evasion.
She was fined 884m yuan (US$129m) for evading taxes totalling US$34m.
Former China Central Television (CCTV) anchor Cui Yongyuan, who leaked Fan’s tax evasion scandal, posted Weibo on the day that Fan’s penalty was officially announced, saying that “the reality proves that the film is a big fraud, and one person who participated in the fraud has been punished”.
The film, with a production budget of as much as US$65m, revolves around the Japanese bombings of Chongqing during World War II. Mel Gibson was one of the film’s art directors.
In addition, Fan, one of the highest-paid actresses in the world, was spotted at Beijing Capital International Airport on Monday, having been out of the public eye since June.
