Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #118. Yuen Woo-ping’s Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon II: The Green Destiny

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon II: The Green Destiny

Director: Yuen Woo-ping

Writer: John Fusco

Producers: David Thwaites, Harvey Weinstein

U.S. Distributor: The Weinstein Co.

Cast: Donnie Yen, Michelle Yeoh

No need comparing Ang Lee’s classic to the eventual sequel as this might be a comparison between apples and oranges. Yuen Wo Ping, the one who infused The Matrix films, the Kill Bills and more recently, The Grandmaster with a unique martial arts choreography true to his own — we’re hoping that the storytelling is just as strong.

Gist: Donnie Yen stars as Silent Wolf and Michelle Yeoh reprises her role as Yu Shu Lienin in what is book 5 in the “Crane-iron Pentalogy” series.

Release Date: With production set for March of this year, there is an outside chance that this might be ready an end of season showing in Asia and perhaps a subsequent Berlin Film Fest 2015 launch.
