Dylan Sprouse To Star in China-Set Movie 'Turandot'

Dylan Sprouse left for China in February to film a new movie, and we finally have new details about the project.

The film is called Turandot, Deadline reports.

The Chinese-produced film will be directed by Xiaolong Zheng, and also stars Guan Xiaotong.

The film centers on Princess Turandot (Xiaotong), who is cursed by a mysterious power emanating from three Mazovian bracelets that were given to her as birthday gifts. These bracelets’ life-draining effects cause the princess to becomes cruel, and gradually she loses her humanity.

Foreign princes who come to court her must solve three riddles — one for each bracelet — and only then will she be freed from the power of the bracelets. In the event any of the questions is answered incorrectly, the attempted solver would be put to death.

Dylan will play Calaf, an ordinary citizen, who risks his life to answer the riddles to save her and inadvertently uncovers his own extraordinary past.
