The screenwriter of the "Kung Fu Panda" movies, Glenn Berger, says Tuesday that China is a hot theme now in Hollywood and allows stories to be told in new and unusual ways.
Hollywood producer Tracey Trench says big movie studios are definitely paying more attention to Asia, especially China.
Studio executives are interested in co-production deals with Chinese production houses to cut costs.
Trench says they're also hoping co-produced movies will get past China's quota on foreign films. China's box office takings surged 30 per cent in 2011 to $2 billion dollars.
