Hugh Jackman has joined emotional drama Snow Flower And The Secret Fan - as Zhang Ziyi dropped out.

The Wolverine star will appear as "the male lead" in the English-language drama, which is currently shooting outside Shanghai, but his publicist played down his role, telling The Hollywood Reporter: "At this point in time, he is doing an unbilled cameo."

Zhang's manager said the actress - who was to have co-produced the film set in rural 19th century China - dropped out "because of scheduling conflicts".

Snow Flower And The Secret Fan - the first Chinese-filmed movie for Chinese-American director Wayne Wang - is based on the eponymous novel by Lisa See, and revolves around the lifelong friendship of Lily and Snow Flower and their imprisonment by rigid cultural norms.
