DISNEY FINDS ITS 'MULAN'
IN CHINESE STAR LIU YIFEI
Disney, who is in the process of turning a lot of their
animated movies into live action ones, has found their lead star for
MULAN live action remake to be directed by Niki Caro! The role of the
daughter of a legendary warrior who impersonates a man in order to fight
in the lines of the Han Dynasty armies against a Hun invasion in the
fifth century China, has been given to young Chinese actress Liu Yifei
also known as Crystal Liu. As The Hollywood Reporter writes a team of
casting directors visited five continents and saw nearly 1,000
candidates for the role, which requires credible martial arts skills!
Hollywood Spy is no stranger to Liu as we've mentioned her many times
over the years when she starred in epic movies Forbidden Kingdom,
alongside Jackie Chan and Jet Li, Outcast, opposite Nicolas Cage and
Hayden Christensen and earlier this year in Once Upon a Time.
