The sequel to Ang Lee’s “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” continues moving forward at The Weinstein Company with news today of a returning star.
Zhang Ziyi is reportedly in talks to return as Jen Yu in flashback sequences for the next film in which the story centers on Yu Shu Lien (Michelle Yeoh). Donnie Yen is also onboard as Silent Wolf.
Entitled “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon – The Green Destiny,” the script is by John Fusco (“The Forbidden Kingdom,” “Hidalgo”) based on “Silver Vase, Iron Knight,” the fifth book in the Crane Iron Pentalogy”.
Wo Ping Yuen has taken over the director’s chair on the project which begins filming next March.
