Zhou Xun's first Hollywood flick gets 'R' rating
Details surrounding Zhou Xun's first Hollywood role remain sketchy, but from what we've heard so far, it's going to be edgy.
Cloud Atlas, a sci-fi flick helmed by the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer, has received an "R" rating in the U.S. for "violence, language, sexuality/nudity and some drug use", which means children below the age of 17 has to be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian to watch the film.
It is said that there will be plenty of swearing and nudity - especially from Korean actress Bae Doona - from the ensemble cast consisting Zhou and Hollywood A-listers like Tom Hanks, Halle Berry and Hugh Grant.
A screen adaptation of David Mitchell's 2004 novel of the same name, the film is a collection of six stories set against the backdrop of different times and places that show how one's action impact the lives of others.
The 164-minute feature film will hit the U.S. theatres on Dec 6.
