The Hollywood Reporter:
"EXCLUSIVE: 3D 'Sex & Zen' to Offer Pick and Choose Edits" (November 12, 2010)
http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/3d-sex-zen-offer-pick-44728
Quote:
HONG KONG - Up to a dozen "tailor-made" versions of erotic 3D film Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy are set to spring up across the globe come the film's release in the summer of 2011.

The film's producers will offer differing cuts to cater to the censorship standards and cultural tastes in different regions. Buyers are encouraged to "pick and choose" edits, not only for their regions, but also for theatrical and DVD releases, to address the censorship concerns of various territories.

The tactic has proved effective, as the rights to the title have been snatched up for Italy, France, Peru, Russia, and Singapore during the American Film Market, after an eight-minute preview in 3D was screened. The film's distribution rep Alvina Wong said buyers can choose, with the producers Stephen Shiu Sr. and Stephen Shiu Jr. and director Christopher Sun to put together "tamer versions" suitable for their respective territories. Rights were pre-sold for New Zealand, Australia and Korea in Cannes.

Produced by the Shiu father-and-son team through their One Dollar Production, the HK$20 million ($2.5i million) action-packed film was shot entirely in stereoscopic 3D. It is a reinvention of the 1991 blockbuster Sex and Zen, inspired by the 17th century Chinese erotic novel The Carnal Prayer Mat, that spawned a wave of copycat period erotica set in historical China. Hong Kong's Menfond, the digital effects house behind Jet Li's Fearless, the alien dog in Stephen Chow's CJ7, and the conversion to 3D of Tim Burton's A Nightmare Before Christmas takes charge on the 3D effects of vigorous, sometimes sadomasochistic, action sequences. Hong Kong release of the film is set for May or June 2011.

The official website for 3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy is now fully functional.

Here's a synopsis for 3D Sex and Zen: Extreme Ecstasy from the official website for the movie: "As a conceited scholar of the Ming Dynasty, Wei Yangsh[e]ng [Hiro Hayama] believes that since life is short, one should pursue the ultimate sexual pleasure as time allows. Wei Yangsheng encounters Tie Fei the Taoist priest's daughter, Tie Yuxiang [Leni Lan], on an occasion. With the former's talent and the latter's beauty, they fall in love at first sight, and Wei Yangsheng is later married into the Tie's family. Yuxiang is elegant and courteous under the influence of her father's faith, though her lack of passion cannot fully satisfy Wei Yangsheng's sexual needs. His disappointment is no less than his affection for her. Â One day, Wei Yangsheng follows his friend Lin to the The Tower of Rarities, where The Prince of Ning keeps his grandiose treasures. Ning's collections are exclusive - from calligraphy, painting and antiques to peerless prodigy. With his appreciation skill for antiques, Wei Yangsheng becomes a guest of honour and is escorted to the Pavilion of Ultimate Bliss, where men and women live a life of wild orgies. The Prince of Ning has two stunners, coitus expert R[u]izhu [Saori Hara] and withdrawn sadist Dongmei [Yukiko Su˘]. With Ning's permission, Wei Yangsheng enjoys promiscuous sex with them day and night. However, his micro-penis soon makes him feel inferior. Â He later encounters The Elder of Ultimate Bliss [Vonnie Lui], a greybeard with the appearance of a beautiful woman who keeps his youth-look by accumulating the Zen of yin yang. Under the guide of The Elder of Ultimate Bliss, Wei Yangsheng not only undergoes a dick-swap operation for a donkey's penis, but also acquires the ultimate sexual skills. Since then he arbitrarily pursues physical pleasure, where he finds unprecedented satisfaction and superiority, physically and psychologically. Â Time passes by, his loving wife Yuxiang waits tranquilly at home for his return. Under the pressure of her father and the neighbours, heartbroken Yuxiang adamantly divorces Wei Yangsheng. Having been abandoned by Yuxiang, Wei Yangsheng aggravates his licentious lifestyle. Â What seems to be adventitious is actually a deadly snare..."

All the reviews make this sound like a straight up remake, with the happy ending being the main difference to the original.
