Live-Action Mulan Movie Planned

Xinhua Media Entertainment and China Film Group will make a $30 million live-action feature based on the life of “Mulan” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The legend of the heroic Chinese girl-warrior was popularized in western culture by Disney’s 1998 animated movie of the same name.

MoviePlus and Arclight are co-producing the feature which is set to begin shooting in China in the spring.
