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.
For years, western filmmakers appropriated Asian stories and movies, remaking and adapting as they saw fit. Now, the tables are turning. It started with Korean remakes of popular (and not-so-popular) American films and now it's extended to literary adaptations. So...are you ready for another version of 'Dangerous Liaisons'? Or, more specifically, are you ready for a version of 'Dangerous Liaisons' set in China?
