      After starring in "Zhou Yu's Express" in 2002, Chinese superstar
      Gong Li seemed to disappear from the film screen.

      However, recently Gong played a part in a Hollywood film
      called "Memoirs of a Geisha" and right afterward she said she had
      signed up to play a major role in Miami Vice, another Hollywood film
      based on the classic 1980s television series of the same name.

      "At present, the scripts I have received are all from Hollywood and
      I probably don't have time for any others," Gong said. "But if time
      permits, then I will be happy to cooperate with domestic directors."

      Produced by Steven Spielberg, with a galaxy of Asian stars including
      Gong Li, Zhang Ziyi and Michelle Yeoh, the shooting of Memoirs was
      finished in January and is expected to be released in North America
      in October.

      "The season selected for Memoir's first run will be favorable for
      next year's Oscars," said Gong.

      She said she was confident of her performance in Memoirs and might
      even be a contender for an Oscar award for the role.

      While Gong was making Memoirs in Hollywood, she came to the
      attention of crime film director Michael Mann, creator of Miami
      Vice.

      In this film, Gong will co-star with Collin Farrell and Jamie Foxx,
      who won the best actor Oscar this year.

      Following Miami Vice, Gong will play a role in the fourth sequel of
      the Hollywood thriller Silence of the Lambs. Gong's agent said many
      Western audiences were familiar with Gong and that she was ideal for
      the role.

      A short time ago, Gong said she had signed on with motion picture
      agents under ICM, the U.S. talent and literary agency working with a
      lot of big names such as Mel Gibson and Judie Foster. Gong also said
      she hoped she would show up at the Oscars next year.
