    HONG KONG -- Former Bond girl Michelle Yeoh will appear in a science fiction movie called Sunshine directed by Danny Boyle of Trainspotting fame, a magazine has reported.

    The script is written by Alex Garland, who wrote the novel The Beach, which was made into a movie starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Yeoh said in an interview published in the September issue of Prestige Hong Kong magazine.

    "They have an amazing team... I've wanted to work with these people for a long while," Yeoh was quoted as saying.

    She reportedly said she plays a botanist. The movie was to have started filming in late August in a London studio, Yeoh said, according to the report.

    Yeoh, an ethnic Chinese from Malaysia, also said filming Memoirs of a Geisha made the action star think she should be more feminine.

    "Doing a movie like Memoirs was good in the sense that it tickled me into thinking, 'Well, maybe I have to be a little more feminine.' But after two hours of that, I said, 'Fine, OK, I did that,' " Yeoh was quoted as saying.

    Yeoh previously appeared in the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies and the martial arts hit Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
