Paramount Pictures has signed a co-production deal with two Chinese entities for its "Transformers 4" and will film part of the action movie in China. Paramount's deal was signed Monday with China Movie Channel, which is operated by the country's State Administration of Radio Film and Television, and Jiaflix Enterprises. As part of the arrangement, the Michael Bay-directed film will include Chinese actors and be partly shot in China. At least some of the project's post-production work could also be done in China.  PHOTOS: Hollywood backlot moments "I look forward to working with China Movie Channel and Jiaflix Enterprises to help reach more people here and deepen their passion for this ongoing story and its characters,” Bay said in a statement.

Chinese security forces fired on a U.S. Embassy car last week, killing the Chinese driver, apparently after he tried to run a late-night roadblock, an embassy spokesman said Saturday. Killed in the Thursday night incident, which did not involve any Americans, was the dispatcher in charge of vehicles for the embassy, spokesman Sheridan Bell said.

Spraying bullets and driving over anyone in their path, four masked men toting automatic weapons killed seven people and injured five others as they escaped empty-handed from a botched bank robbery in southern China, state media said Sunday. More than 1,000 police and paramilitary officers were combing the city of Changde, in Hunan province, for the assailants, whom investigators believe may be linked to other violent robberies.

In an official move likely to further strain Washington's relations with China's new hard-line leadership, the U.S. Embassy here filed an angry protest with the Chinese government Monday, charging that People's Liberation Army troops deliberately targeted the apartments of American diplomats June 7 in a "premeditated" machine-gun attack on a diplomatic apartment complex in downtown Beijing.

Premier Li Peng said Tuesday that the Chinese government was right to use force to suppress pro-democracy demonstrations two years ago and that if necessary, it would do it again. But in a verbal stumble that highlighted the continuing political sensitivity of the 1989 massacre, Li at one point in a two-hour news conference found himself groping for words to stress that the Chinese leadership had been forced by circumstances into ordering the army to open fire.

The U.S. Embassy in Beijing has evidence that the shooting by Chinese soldiers last month at foreign diplomats' apartments was a planned, coordinated attack, U.S. officials said Sunday. The officials, who declined to be identified, said the U.S. Embassy will likely lodge a new complaint this week with the Chinese Foreign Ministry over findings in a report compiled last week on the June 7 shooting incident.

Zhang Shan of China won the gold medal Tuesday in skeet shooting, becoming the first woman to win top honors in open Olympic shooting competition. And unless the International Shooting Union has a change of heart, no other woman will win another Olympic skeet shooting medal because the federation has decided to drop women from competition after this year.
