Michelle Yeoh Stars In 'Mummy: Curse of the Dragon'
Friday, May 11, 2007
Yeoh will play a wizard* in the third mummy film, in which kungfu star Jet Li plays the mummy. In this film, the mummy is an ancient Chinese emperor, a shape-shifting* entity* who was cursed by the wizard centuries ago.
The pair previously worked together in the kungfu movie "The Tai Chi Master," so their latest collaboration* is eagerly anticipated as both of them are known for their martial arts* skills.
Part of the film, which will begin shooting on July 27, will be shot in Qinshihuang's terra-cotta* warriors* and horses museum in Xi'an, Shaanxi Province. It will be the first Hollywood production to be shot in the museum.
The movie will hit screens worldwide in July 2008.
I don't know, but somehow I miss the old Egyptian mummy, because this franchise seems to be getting a bit silly, what with Jet Li dipping his kung fu hands into the picture.
