"Chinese Fever" shows no sign of abating in Hollywood. A few weeks after Tom Cruise finished shooting "Mission Impossible 3" in Shanghai, news comes that Nicole Kidman is following her ex-husband's footsteps to China early next year.
The Hollywood super star is visiting Beijing for the first time, to shoot her latest film "Headhunters," which co-stars Edward Norton and her Moulin Rouge leading man, Ewan McGregor.
The film tells a story of love and betrayal, in which Nicole plays a schizophrenic who is the lover of the character played by Ewan McGregor. During her one-month visit to Beijing, Nicole is also slated to be a guest on the new Hunan Satellite TV program, "Lovely Housewife", where she will talk about the differences between women from eastern and southern countries, alongside Chinese star Gong Li.
