Memoirs of a Geisha will be made into a movie starring (strangely enough) a Chinese actress (Zhang Ziyi from Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Rush Hour 2), and Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai)
I'm kinda looking forward to it though. I think the movie will be great.
By the way, The Da Vinci Code will also be movie-sized. Starring Tom Hanks as Robert L.
Isn't that great?
