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 see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.
