Xinhua has reproduced a story from CRIEnglish.com, making us wonder whether Tom and Nicole will be in Shanghai at the same time:
Oscar winning actress Nicole Kidman has recently met Director Wong Kar-Wai in New York to prepare her costumes for her role in The Lady From Shanghai.
This film, which is Wong’s first English language film, is set in Shanghai during the 1930’s.
Nicole will play a Shanghai woman who has a dangerous love affair with a spy.
The name list of other cast members has not yet revealed.
This film will be shot in Shanghai and Russia at the end of this year or early next year.
