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.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
