Chinese superstar Andy Lau is in final negotiations for a role in Shane Black’s upcoming “Iron Man 3” reports Neon Punch.

Lau is reportedly set to play a Chinese scientist who comes to the aid of his friend Tony Stark (Robert Downey, Jr.) and giving him technology to battle Ben Kingsley and Guy Pearce’s characters.

The news comes as Shane Black appeared in a clip at this week’s CinemaCon in Las Vegas where he called the film a technological crisis thriller set in the world of international war and terror.

Shooting will take place on location in Hong Kong, Shanghai and other parts of China later this summer after wrapping filming in North Carolina which begins in a few weeks.
