Zhang Ziyi in Talks for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon Sequel

With production on Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon II – The Green Destiny, the long-in-development sequel to Ang Lee’s Oscar-winning 2000 film, set to start in March 2014, Entertainment Weekly got word that Ziyi Zhang is being approached to reprise her breakout role as Jen Yu in flashbacks that will explain what happened to her character.

Michelle Yeoh is already slated to return as Yu Shu Lien with Donnie Yen being brought on board to play Silent Wolf with director and legendary action choreographer Yuen Wo Ping– director of Donnie Yen’s Iron Monkey–at the helm.

The sequel, written by John Fusco, is based on the fifth book in Wang Du Lu’s Crane-Iron Pentalogy series that spawned the original film, and it would reunite Zhang and Ping who recently worked together on the action choreography for Wong Kar Wai’s martial arts action film The Grandmaster, which is released in North America this Friday, August 23.
