Even as Netflix continues expanding its original programming (and upping subscriber rates in the meantime), you’d be hard pressed not to at least notice the epic Marco Polo series. Now, the expensive international series prepares to return for a second season announcing a July debut with the first official teaser.
Netflix hasn’t garnered as much outright attention with their heavily-financed historical epic Marco Polo, but at least some of that money will go to good use in Season 2. Fresh off Netflix’s original Crouching Tiger sequel film, Michelle Yeoh joins Marco Polo Season 2 for an important recurring role.
It's been a few years since the release of Jason Statham's 'The Mechanic,' the remake of the 1972 film starring Charles Bronson, and now the action flick is getting a sequel and Statham is getting some fresh co-stars: Tommy Lee Jones, Jessica Alba, and Michelle Yeoh have joined the cast of 'Mechanic: Resurrection.' And although production has already begun, it'll be a while before you see this one -- 2016 to be exact.
When it was released in 2000, Ang Lee's 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' became an instant critical darling and surprise box office smash, winning fistfuls of Oscars and opening the door for countless other Asian films to open internationally. It only took 13 years, but the sequel will begin shooting in early 2014. Titled 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: The Green Destiny,' the long-awaited film will feature the return of several original cast members, including Ziyi Zhang, who is in talks to reprise the role of Jen.
