Jeffrey Dean Morgan Headed for Shanghai


Jeffrey Dean Morgan (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “Supernatural,” upcoming Watchmen) will star in the Weinstein Company’s period piece Shanghai alongside John Cusack and Ken Watanabe.

Morgan plays Connor, an American killed in Japanese-occupied Shanghai before the attack on Pearl Harbor. Cusack’s Paul Soames sets out to investigate his friend’s murder and discovers a larger secret that the government is hiding.

Mikael Hafstrom (1408) is directing from a script by Hossein Amini (The Four Feathers). The film is in production in Thailand.
