BUSAN, South Korea, Oct 16 (AP) -- Actress Maggie Quigley will soon start shooting the fourth installment of the "Die Hard" series alongside Bruce Willis, and will also have a smaller role in a film featuring Hugh Jackman, Quigley's publicist said.

Quigley -- better known as Maggie Q -- was on the sidelines of a film festival in Busan, South Korea on Sunday to promote a third upcoming film, "Three Kingdoms: Resurrection of the Dragon."

She was set to leave for New York early Monday for filming on the Jackman film, "The Tourist," then head to Los Angeles to shoot "Live Free Or Die Hard," her publicist Kim Murphy told The Associated Press.

Quigley made her name in the Hong Kong film industry before moving on to Hollywood projects like "Rush Hour 2" and "Around the World in 80 Days."

She had a starring role in Tom Cruise's "Mission: Impossible III," in which she plays Zhen, a member of Cruise's team of agents who hunt down an arms dealer.

Quigley, born to American and Vietnamese parents, plays a villain in "Live Free Or Die Hard," Murphy said.

"The Tourist" is a thriller that also features Ewan McGregor and Michelle Williams, said Quigley's manager, Andrew Ooi. He declined to give further details on the plot.

"Three Kingdoms: Resurrection of the Dragon," directed by Hong Kong's Daniel Lee, is a Hong Kong-South Korean co-production based on the classic Chinese novel "Three Kingdoms." The movie revolves around a battle set in ancient China.

Quigley, who plays a female general in the movie, praised Lee's work ethic and said she's looking forward to working with him again. Lee directed her in the action movie "Dragon Squad."

"Daniel is a director who doesn't sleep. He's very dedicated," she said.
