The lead player in Feng Xiaogang's much acclaimed film "The Assembly" is back on screen in a small budget film, "The Cold Flame." Zhang Hanyu, showed up Tuesday in Beijing at a press release to promote his new film.

"The Cold Flame" completed shooting in 2005. The investors decided the film's release date - right at the end of this year's new year movie season - in the hope of extending the cinema going season just a little longer.

It's set in the 1940s when China was fighting the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression. "The Cold Flame" tells an affectionate love story of a military officer and an innocent girl. Zhang Hanyu landed the role of the soldier. Some compare Zhang's performance to his previous role, Guzidi, in "The Assembly". Both pictures deal with military life.
