Kidman to grace Shanghai festival

Nicole Kidman is among the Hollywood stars heading to the Shanghai International Film Festival.

The Oscar-winning actress is taking her Grace Kelly biopic Grace Of Monaco to the event later this month, weeks after it was panned by critics when it opened the Cannes Film Festival.

Black Swan actress Natalie Portman will attend the closing ceremony in Shanghai.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, other stars heading to China for the festival include Kirsten Dunst, Hugh Grant and Hayden Christensen.

Chinese actress Gong Li has been named president of the jury for the festival's main award, making her the first female to head the jury.

The festival is scheduled to run from June 14 to 22.
