    Zhou Xun to play taxi driver in new movie

    Hong Kong, Aug. 22 (AP): Rising Chinese actress Zhou Xun will play a taxi driver searching for a missing boyfriend in the urban romance called ``The Encounters of Li Mi'' in Chinese, a spokeswoman said on Tuesday.

    The Chinese-language movie is scheduled to start shooting Tuesday in southern Yunnan province for a month or two, Ran Zi, a publicist for Zhou, told The Associated Press in a phone interview.

    Ran said the movie is directed by Beijing Film Academy professor Cao Baoping.

    Zhou, one of China's top actresses, was most recently seen in Feng Xiaogang's historical epic ``The Banquet,'' an adaptation of Shakespeare's ``Hamlet,'' and ``Ming Ming,'' about two lookalike women who flee from gangsters seeking to recover a mysterious box.

    Zhou won best actress at Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards - the Chinese-language equivalent of the Oscars - for her portrayal of a movie star caught between past and present loves in ``Perhaps Love.''
