Mainland Chinese superstar actress Fan Bingbing, who graced herself at international carpet events including this year's Cannes, has been widely praised for her stunning fashion sense. The 30-year-old actress has been long hinted she wants to enter Hollywood this year, and a news broke out that she may potentially sign on as the latest addition to the cast of Shane Black's upcoming IRON MAN 3. As of now, there's no official statement yet whether the casting of Fan Bingbing is actually takes place or not.
Still DMG Entertainment, the China-based production company which will be co-producing with Walt Disney, has already contacted Fan's agents to handle the offer and is now awaiting confirmation on whether or not she's interested.
On a related news, Yao Chen and Liu Ye have also been contacted about roles for IRON MAN 3. But DMG movie co-producer Dan Mintz has earlier revealed that Andy Lau wasn't contacted, but didn't rule out the possibility of working with the Hong Kong superstar.
Whichever the outcome is, Mintz has pointed out that IRON MAN 3 will feature plenty of Chinese actors and this third installment will incorporate elements of Chinese culture while remaining an international movie.
IRON MAN 3 is scheduled to hit theaters on May 2013.
