Disney's Live Action Mulan Gets the Green Light

Disney has agreed to invest $100 million into Zhang Ziyi’s live action, 3D adaptation of their 1998 cartoon Mulan. Ziyi plans to both produce and star in the film. The lead actor has been confirmed as Taiwan pop singer Lee-Hom Wang, who speaks fluent English.

The film will start shooting in October, as collaboration with Disney. It was originally set to be directed by Hong Kong director Johnny To, but the project was delayed for some time due to financial problems and he departed. Finally brought on board to direct was Chuck Russell, the man behind such bona fide classics as “The Mask”, “The Blob” and “The Scorpion King”.

Disney filmed “Mulan” as a cartoon in 1998, which subsequently took in 120 million US dollars at the box office.
