Gong Li Shares Love In "Shanghai"

The Weinstein Company presents "Shanghai", a period drama directed by Mikael Håfström ("Vendetta"), following an American (John Cusack) in the city of Shanghai who, through the investigation of the death of a friend, ends up falling in love, while stumbling upon a political conspiracy.

Also starring are Gong Li, Chow Yun-Fat and Ken Watanabe.

"...In the months leading up to the bombing of Pearl Harbor, an American man (Cusack) arrives in Shanghai to find his friend recently murdered. In investigating his friend's death, he stumbles upon a secret the United States government has been keeping and falls in love in the process..."

Lensing of "Shanghai" started on location in Shanghai, China until the shooting permit was revoked, forcing the producers to relocate to Bangkok and the UK.
