This is just too weird to not mention. It seems Zhang Ziyi's two new projects have very quadrangular twists. First, she is doing the voice of a villainous character in the new live action version of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. Why just her voice? That's because the character, Karai, is a computer and latex covered creature. Yes, the flick is in English, so that makes her casting choice doubly odd.

Next, she has another Hollywood English-language role in a thriller with Dennis Quaid about a serial-killing spree that is linked to the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Four doomsday horsemen, four pizza-eating turtles that practise martial arts - both sound like the end of civilisation as we know it.
