Michelle Yeoh confirms "Crouching Tiger 2"

Michelle Yeoh back to star in "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon II – The Green Destiny".

19 May – While the "Crouching Tiger" sequel was formally confirmed back in January, we still had no confirmation on what it was called or if Michelle Yeoh was confirmed to lead.

It is also now confirmed that legendary action director and choreographer Yuen Woo-ping is on to direct what is now called "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon II – The Green Destiny", and Michelle Yeoh is back to star.

Michelle, who was a big part of the original flick, will return as Shu Lien, with Donnie Yen signing on as Silent Wolf.

Yuen Wo Ping was responsible for directing the stunts for "The Grandmaster".

Production will begin in March 2014 based on a screenplay by John Fusco. The film will focus even more on Shu Lien.

"I loved Ang Lee's film," stated TWC co-chair Harvey Weinstein. "I thought it was a master class in directing, but I know we are in fantastic hands with Yuen Wo Ping directing the second installment. He is a first-class director and choreographer, and I am thrilled to be teaming up with him once more."
