Chinese actress Zhang Ziyi is set to star in romantic comedy Lost For Words, which Susanne Bier is directing for the UK's Working Title Films. Hugh Grant is also in talks to join the film.

The film is scheduled to start shooting in September in London and possibly China.

It shouldn't be a stretch for either Grant or Zhang as the story follows a movie star who falls in love with a Chinese actress.

Zhang, who stars opposite Dennis Quaid in Jonas Akerlund's upcoming Horsemen.
