A sequel to the martial arts epic ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ is on the way.
‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Green Legend,’ produced by The Weinstein Company, will premiere exclusively on Netflix and in selected IMAX theaters on August 28, 2015.
Longtime Larchmont resident Ang Lee, who directed the original Oscar-winning film, is not on board for the sequel. The film will be directed by Yuen Wo-Ping, a martial arts choreographer known for his work in the ‘The Matrix’ and ‘Kill Bill.’ Michelle Yeoh will reprise her role as as Yu Shu-Lien. Donnie Yen will play Silent Wolf.
‘Green Legend’ will be Netflix’s first original movie. “We are honored to be working with Harvey Weinstein and a world-class team of creators to bring this epic story to people all over the world and to partner with IMAX,” Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said.
