Chinese classical pianist Lang Lang contributed his musical talents to the upcoming film "Shanghai," the Beijing News learned from the film's producer at Huayi Brothers Media Group on June 2.

The film features a piano solo which runs for almost 10 minutes during part of the story. Lang Lang said the sophisticated production and profound story were the factors that attracted him to join the project. "The film is a good adventure story filled with romance and suspense, and they made it look like an old-style movie. I thought it was a very attractive opportunity for me."

Lang Lang will attend the Chinese premiere with the cast next week. "The Grifters" actor John Cusack, Chinese-Singaporean actress Gong Li, Hong Kong action star Chow Yun-fat, and Japanese Academy Award nominated actor Ken Watanabe will also be in attendance to promote the film.
