Grant, Zhang's words

06.10.2008
Hugh Grant and Zhang Ziyi will star in LOST FOR WORDS, a romantic comedy, for director Susan Bier (THINGS WE LOST IN THE FIRE. Grant is in discussions to play a British film star approached to topline a pic by a Chinese femme filmmaker. He falls for the charms of the helmer's flirtatious translator, but soon sees the object of his true affection is the director (Zhang). Unfortunately, his translator is the only person who can communicate his feelings, and she has her own motives.

Legend has it listening to Zhang Ziyi try and speak English makes a porcupine's spines fall out, but if she's speaking Mandarin for this movie I'm there. Because fact is this chick is gorgeous. And can act. Still, kind of a weird on-screen couple, no?

Extra Tidbit: Grant supports English football team Fulham FC. If you don't know who they are, don't worry about it: they're shit.

Ummmm, Kill Billionair you're thinking of Gong Li and not Zhang Ziyi. Who I personally think is twice as hot as Ziyi

I tought her accent in Miami Vice was great.

But if you'd have a sarcasm detector and you'd hold it close to me as I was writing that it would short circuit.

The..

... premise has potential. I think it will work better as a more down to earth and real romcom versus getting slapsticky which would be disappointing and lame. It is a bit of a May/December matchup, but Grant still has the charm and Zhang Ziyi's hot.

StrongSad, guess what? Tom Cruise was 42 when he married Katie Holmes at age 22. So it can happen, especially in Hollywood. Just say'n love knows no bounds.

I really liked Bier's After the Wedding, which starred Mads Mikkelsen, so despite the concept not sounding that great, I'm interested.

I did the math and this is just about the same as Sharon Stone and Tobey Maguire making a romantic comedy.
