Sharon Stone arrives in Shanghai

Sharon Stone will be among celebrities who take a turn on the red carpet at Saturday's opening of the Shanghai International Film Festival.

The "Basic Instinct" actress arrived in China's commercial hub late Tuesday, with local newspapers showing her stepping from a Mercedes Sedan into the lobby of the downtown Marriott hotel wearing white slacks and a dark, long-sleeved top.

The festival's organizers said Stone, a star of last year's ensemble piece "Bobby," would be joined at Saturday's opening by Marion Cotillard, the star of the Edith Piaf biopic "La Vie en Rose," "Memoirs of a Geisha" actress Kaori Momoi, and Taiwanese singer-actor Jay Chou, along with a host of Chinese and South Korean stars.

Acclaimed Chinese director Chen Kaige heads the multinational jury at this year's festival that also includes Luc Jacquet, director of the 2006 Academy Award winning documentary "March of the Penguins."

The June 16-24 festival, now in its 10th year, features lectures, screenings, and a marketplace for films, as well as the awarding of its top prize, the Jin Jue, or "Golden Goblet" prize.
