Famed Taiwanese and Hong Kong actress Brigitte Lin has come out of retirement to play a role in director Zhang Yimou's upcoming film "Dragon's Kisses" (Long Wen).

With the budget of 100 million yuan, the film features a host of strong cast members including singer Hu Ling, pianist Lang Lang and comedian Guo Degang.

But more surprisingly, Lin will play alongside the Hollywood megastar Angelina Jolie. After many years away from the silver screen, Lin's return has really stolen some thunder by working with such powerful cast and crew.

Lin had worked with martial arts master Tsui Hark in many of the films he directed and produced such as "Peking Opera Blues" and "Swordsman II."

She married businessman Michael Ying in 1994 and had left the film industry until now.
