    Disney makes 'Secret' its first Chinese co-production

    BEIJING -- Walt Disney Studios is co-producing a film in China for the first time in a move that signals the company's latest attempt to tap the country's potentially huge entertainment market, Disney executives said Wednesday at trade show CineAsia. The live-action Chinese-language film "The Secret of the Magic Gourd," makes Disney only the third Hollywood studio after Warner Bros. and Sony's Columbia to produce a film in partnership with players from China's growing industry. Disney's partners in the film version of the 1958 children's book are state-run China Film Group Corp. and Hong Kong special effects house Centro Digital Pictures, best known for work on Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill." "We look forward to 'The Secret of the Magic Gourd' being the first of many local Chinese-language films that we make in China," said Mark Zoradi, president of Disney distribution arm Buena Vista International.
