One word explains this sequel, just one word, China. The Hollywood Reporter has announced the official word that “Michelle Yeoh will star in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 2 -- The Green Destiny, the Weinstein Co.'s sequel to Ang Lee's Oscar-winning 2000 foreign-language hit”.
If you are wondering what the story will be based and who the players are involved it’s: “Chinese director and martial arts choreographer Yuen Wo Ping is set to direct, with Donnie Yen starring as Silent Wolf and Yeoh returning as Yu Shu Lien. The screenplay is based on Iron Knight, Silver Vase by Wang Du Lu, book five in the Crane-Iron Pentalogy - on which the first Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon was based”.
Yes, you read that right, Ang Lee will not be involved with the production. Back to that one word, China. It is a huge market for Hollywood and a film of this nature is perfect for that. What do you think Maniacs? Will you return for a sequel, 14 tears later, with only Michelle Yeoh? Production begins in March of 2014.
