It's been over a decade since the incredible and adorable Ang Lee, brought us his mystical masterpiece "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon". The movie captivated audiences and critics alike, and earned an impressive 10 Oscar nominations. Winning 4 awards including Best Foreign Language Film, Best Cinematography, Best Music and Best Art Direction, it was also nominated for Best Director and Best Picture.
Lee, who most recently won an Academy Award for Best Director for "Life of Pi", really created a special and unique film, and we're very pleased to hear that a sequel is finally on the way.
The title will aptly be named "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon II: The Green Destiny" and production is said to kickoff March of next year. Lee will not be helming this one, and Woo-ping Yuen will be stepping behind the lens.
The film will star Donnie Yen and Silent Wolf and Michelle Yeoh will be reprising her memorable role as Yu Shu Lien. Yuen will be working off of John Fusco's screenplay, which is said to be based off the fifth book in Du Lu Wang's Crane-Iron Pentalogy series, "Iron Knight, Silver Vase".
The Weinstein Company and Yucaipa Films are producing and they are aiming for a 2015 release.
