Cecilia Cheung (張栢芝) has been offered to star in a big-budget Hollywood action movie! With her beautiful looks and superb acting skills, the HKFA Best Actress attracted the notice of even Hollywood. The male lead star was rumored to be either Nicholas Cage, Russell Crowe, or Hugh Jackman!
It was known that the rumored movie will be filmed in Beijing, China and the United States at the end of the year. Featuring explosion, car racing, and even airplane scenes, the film’s action direction will resemble the thrilling feats found in James Bond movies.
Cecilia’s management company, New Asia Entertainment Group (AEG) confirmed that they were currently negotiating a Hollywood movie offer for her. Since both parties signed confidentiality agreements, the AEG representative indicated that further details cannot be disclosed at this time.
In recent years, Hollywood productions have increasingly featured more Asian stars. It was a foolproof strategy to appeal to the rising box office power of mainland China, which was the world’s second largest after the United States.
Super Mom and International Star
Cecilia’s personal life and professional career were tested over the last year. After getting divorced from Nicholas Tse (謝霆鋒), Cecilia has juggled filming projects along with the duties of being a mother to two young sons, Lucas and Quintus. She often maximized on filming breaks to fly back to Hong Kong and take whisked her sons away on short vacations.
Cecilia Cheung’s new film, Dangerous Liaisons <危險關係> will be premiering at the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival on May 24th, which also happened to be Cecilia’s 32nd birthday. Dangerous Liaisons also starred Korean actor, Jang Dong Gun and Zhang Ziyi (章子怡). The Cannes Film Festival’s organizational committee has also invited Cecilia to serve as a guest presenter.
Celebrating Quintus’ 2nd birthday on May 12th, Cecilia was often a “super mom” who thrilled in involving herself in her son’s milestones. Although she wished to have Lucas join her at the Cannes Film Festival, Cecilia will have to stay there for one week due to various work arrangements. Thus, Cecilia will not be traveling with her sons.

Jayne: There should be a high chance that Cecilia lands the role in this big-budget Hollywood movie. If they sought her out based on her acting and looks, they likely find her suitable. Very interested in finding the outcome of the negotiations and who the male lead will be! I do not find Nicholas Cage, Russell Crowe, or even Hugh Jackman to be a good match with Cecilia though!
It’s interesting that we first speculated that Nicholas Tse might make a foray into Hollywood following his high-profile appearance on “America’s Next Top Model,” but Cecilia may actually star in a major Hollywood movie first!
After reading the description of this action movie they have in mind, I cannot help but imagine Cecilia touting some big guns and doing some action stunts. I can also see her in a Transformers type of movie, where she plays a sassy sidekick similar to Megan Fox. Cecilia has attitude and she will not take those demure roles in Hollywood!
The recent news of Chinese and Hollywood collaboration efforts in films are incredibly exciting. Fan Bingbing has supposedly set her sights on entering Hollywood as well! Karen Mok would be a good fit too, but she seems set on her music career recently.
