Written by Jeremy Adams (Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge), the story will be an original idea rather than a specific comic book series and will see the titular DC hero face a deadly menace from his past and partner up with three former classmates, world-renowned martial artists Richard Dragon, Ben Turner and Lady Shiva, to bring it down.
The cast for the film includes David Giuntoli (Grimm, A Million Little Things) as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Dacascos as Richard Dragon, Kelly Hu (Arrow, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as Lady Shiva, Turner as Ben Turner/Bronze Tiger, James Hong (Abominable, Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as O-Sensei and Josh Keaton (Lego DC Shazam!: Magic and Monsters, Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater) as Jeffrey Burr.
The film is being executive produced by Batman: The Animated Series co-creator Bruce Timm with Sam Liu (Reign of the Supermen, Batman: The Killing Joke) set to direct and produce while Warner Bros. Animation, DC and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment are attached to produce what marks the 42nd movie project in the DC Animated Universe.
Batman: Soul of the Dragon is set to hit shelves in early 2021.
