Real life hero Bauhinia Heroine gets a film – with Chrissie Chau!

Bauhinia Heroine is a real life super hero who dresses in costume and gives money to the poor, highlighting the growing wealth gap in China. The actual identity of Bauhinia woman is unknown, but her methods have attracted the attention of 3D Sex and Zen filmmmaker Stephen Shiu Jr, who will be making a film about her with Chrissie Chau playing the superheroine. No decision has been reached on if it will be in 3D, but it will be an action film and there will be other masked characters.

As reported by WantChinaTimes, Bauhinia Woman first appeared in mid-May, giving HK$100(US$12.86) and food to 10 poor families. She has continued her efforts as her popularity exploded on the internet, because this is the kind of stuff the internet loves. Bauhinia Woman admits to being inspired by Kick-Ass (finally something good about that movie) and the classic heroine character Black Rose (see our in-depth reviews of the Black Rose films here and here), which is why she named herself after the flower that represents Hong Kong (bauhinia, for those of you unaware of what I am talking about)
