Chen Kaige (Simplified Chinese: 陈凯歌; Traditional Chinese: 陳凱歌; Hanyu Pinyin: Chén Kǎigē; Wade-Giles: Ch'en K'ai-ko) (born August 12, 1952) is a famous Chinese film director.

Chen has also acted in several films, including Bertolucci's The Last Emperor (1987) and his own The Emperor and the Assassin.
