Paramount Pictures announced yet another buzzworthy addition to its “Transformers 4” cast today, Chinese actress Li Bingbing.
Cinephiles might recognize Bingbing from her previous work in films like “Resident Evil: Retribution,” “Snow Flower and the Secret Fan,” and alongside Jet Li and Jackie Chan in 2008’s “Forbidden Kingdom.”
There are no details yet as to what kind of character Bingbing has signed on to play, but given her experience in and popularity for her action-oriented films and television shows in China, it is fairly safe to assume that she will not be playing a helpless damsel in distress. Perhaps she’ll be more edgy femme fatale or a possible villainess in cahoots with the previously-announced human baddie played by Kelsey Grammer?
Bingbing joins Grammer, Mark Wahlberg, Stanley Tucci, Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz and Sophia Myles in the upcoming film.
