Ziyi Zhang To Play Mulan

Ziyi Zhang To Play Mulan

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon actress Ziyi Zhang will portray the legendary young heroine soldier Hua Mulan in an independently-produced live action film.

The story was first popularized in the 1998 Disney animated film, Mulan. This time, the pic will be helmed by director Jan de Bont (Speed, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider). Seems like creating superstars out of kick-ass female characters is Jan‘s thing!

Mulan is set to start shooting this fall outside Shanghai. Let’s hope this one’s a good one!
