UPDATE: The cover image for the tie-in ENGLISH LANGUAGE book based on the film have been released!
UPDATE: The title for the film have officially been changed to CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON 2: SWORD OF DESTINY.
UPDATE: After both Ang Lee (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and Ronny Yu (Fearless) turned down the offer to helm the sequel, master YUEN WOO-PING (Iron Monkey) stepped up to the challenge. Woo-Ping spoke about the pressure and how long of a process it was to get the script just right for CTHD 2:
“I’m facing the challenge while understanding the difficulties. Although I know we made a classic before, I’m still willing to try. (Regarding the script) Americans don’t really understand Chinese inner feelings and emotion. I knew he (script writer John Fusco) did a lot of research, but it still wasn’t enough, and the story is flat. I had to get a Chinese script writer to help, to explore more depth in the inner core of Chinese emotions.”
Pegasus Media president SUN JIANJUN added that the script for “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 2” has been rewritten and edited around 10 times in 6 to 7 years, which led to the delay of the film.
This just shows how difficult it is to film a movie based off of a Chinese story entirely in English.
Stay tuned for a trailer soon!
UPDATE: Here are the new HI-RES images featuring MICHELLE YEOH as ‘Yu Shu Lien’ (above), DONNIE YEN as ‘Meng Si-Zhao’ aka ‘Silent Wolf’, HARRY SHUM JR. as ‘Tie-Fang’, and NATASHA LIU BORDIZZO as ‘Xue-Ping’ aka ‘Snow Vase’!
UPDATE: New official images have emerged (thanks to our good friend DANNY HO) featuring DONNIE YEN and MICHELLE YEOH!
A press conference for the film was held at Huairou District, Beijing with the attendance of Director YUEN WOO-PING, producer HARVEY WEINSTEIN and BEY LOGAN, Netflix and China’s Pegasus Media representitives, and cast members JASON SCOTT LEE, NATASHA LIU BORDIZZO, and JUJU CHAN. Both DONNIE YEN and MICHELLE YEOH were absent at the event due to their commitment on other projects.
‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 2: The Green Legend’ is set to be released on February 26th, 2016 simultaneously on Netflix and IMAX!
UDPATE: With just over one month left before its initial release date (August 28th) and no marketing whatsoever, it is not surprising that we have to wait a little bit longer to see DONNIE YEN’s reunion with director YUEN WOO PING. According to VULTURE ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon 2’ have been pushed back to the first quarter of 2016. Patience is a virtue…
UPDATE: NEW on-set image featuring DONNIE YEN, MICHELLE YEOH, and ROGER YUAN!
UPDATE: Check out these NEW on-set images of VERONICA NGO with her fellow cast and crew!
UPDATE: Vietnamese superstar VERONICA NGO aka NGO THANH VAN (The Rebel, Clash) is confirmed to play the role of ‘Mantis’ in CTHD2!
This will serve as a mini reunion of sorts as CHARLIE NGUYEN (who is serving as the 2nd unit director on CTHD2) have worked with Veronica on 2007’s ‘The Rebel’. Veronica will also be reunited with ROGER YUAN (who is portraying ‘Iron Crow’), her co-star in last year’s action fantasy ‘Once Upon A Time In Vietnam’.
We have no idea how big her role is, but for Veronica to land a gig in an international film of this caliber is amazing news! We can not wait for the rest of the world (outside of Vietnam) to finally see what she’s capable of! Check out a sample below of a fight scene from ‘The Rebel’ and you will see.

UPDATE: More bad news, looks like AMC have joined Regal and Cinemark in refusing to show ‘Crouching Tiger 2’ on their IMAX screens.
UPDATE: Uh oh. Major theater chains REGAL and CINEMARK says they are NOT interested in showing CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON 2: THE GREEN LEGEND on their IMAX screens.
Regal spokesman Russ Nunley said, “While a home video release may be simultaneously performing in certain IMAX locations, at Regal we will not participate in an experiment where you can see the same product on screens varying from three stories tall to 3-inch wide on a smart phone. We believe the choice for truly enjoying a magnificent movie is clear.”
Cinemark spokesman James Meredith echoed Regal’s sentiments: “Cinemark does not play day-and-date movie releases on any of our screens including the IMAX screens that we operate.”
This spells bad news. The studio better hope AMC do not follow the same path or else ‘Crouching Tiger 2’ is doomed in trying to reach major audiences. Teaming up with NETFLIX might have just backfired.
Stay tuned for more updates.
THE WEINSTEIN CO. have reached a deal to team up with NETFLIX to officially release CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON 2: THE GREEN LEGEND simultaneously on Netflix and in IMAX theaters on August 28, 2015!
As viewers, you will now have the choice to watch the epic sequel on the big screen or in the comfort of your own home on opening day.
Based on the fifth book “Silver Vase, Iron Knight”, ‘Crouching Tiger 2’ stars MICHELLE YEOH, who is set to reprise her role as ‘Yu Shu-Lien’ and reunite with her WING CHUN co-star DONNIE YEN (pictured above) and director YUEN WOO PING (True Legend). 2nd unit directing duties will be handled by Vietnamese director CHARLIE NGUYEN (The Rebel).
Filmed entirely in English with production currently shooting on location in New Zealand, the film also co-stars JASON SCOTT LEE (Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story), HARRY SHUM JR. (TV’s Glee), and ROGER YUAN (Once Upon A Time In Vietnam).
