Last year, Disney cast Chinese Liu Yifei in the lead role in the full-length game remake of Mulan, and now she has a company. According to the information portal Deadline, Donnie Yen (Ip Man) has joined the cast of the film.|
According to the source, Ian will play the role of Warlord Tang in the remake, who will be Mulan's mentor and teacher. Nicky Caro (The Zoo Keeper's Wife) will lead the filming of the tape, while Lauren Hynek, Rick Jaffa (In the Heart of the Sea), Amanda Silver (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and Elizabeth Martin managed to work on the script.
Recall that the original Disney cartoon tells about the Chinese girl Mulan, pretending to be a man in order to go to war instead of her father. The house of mice has yet to find actors for the roles of Shang, Shan-Yu and the dragon Mushu, if, of course, they move from the animated version to its live remake. Since Donnie Yen's character was created specifically for the upcoming film, the creators of Mulan will make changes to the plot familiar to the audience. Earlier rumors also surfaced that, unlike other Disney game remakes, Mulan will not be a musical. The picture tends to be more action-oriented, judging by Ian's casting.
Donnie Yen has already worked with Disney during the filming of Rogue One. In the past few years, the actor has been seen in action games such as XXX: World Domination, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny and Chasing Dragons, while Donnie's plans remain for a film based on the video game Sleeping Dogs and the fourth part of the Ip Man franchise.
