A movie I would like to see

How about this: Yimou Zhang, the great director of Curse of the Golden Flower, Raise the Red Lantern, House of Flying Daggers, and other masterworks of color and light, directing a movie about Liang Dao Ming, pirate of the Malacca strait, Cantonese king of Palembang, abscondee of the Ming dynasty.

Yimou Zhang, with his eye for color, could have an interesting time on the sea - I have the feeling he'd work with a lot of sunsets - but it could certainly be the setting for a wonderful exploration of the returning nation/love theme.
