The Weinstein Company is in final talks to sign a three-picture deal with top Chinese actress Ziyi Zhang, the first being a live-action version of Mulan. Second up with Zhang, the Weinsteins are planning a remake of Akira Kurosawa's 1954 film The Seven Samurai.

Mulan is set up as one of the debut pictures out of the new Meridian Pictures being established by Chinese multi-millionaire David Dong.

The movie is written by Wang Hui-ling (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and forthcoming John Woo project The Battle of Red Cliff). It draws on a Chinese folk tale of a female resistance fighter who disguises herself as her father to take his place in battle.

Disney made Mulan into an animated movie in 1998, but the tale was first put on the big screen in a 1956 Chinese production.

Source?

I'm really hoping that this movie follows through with Zhang Ziyi in the lead and also, I heard that Michelle Yeoh (Memoirs of a Geisha, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon with Zhang Ziyi) would be part of this film whether it's in production or play a part in the movie.

That would be great seeing Zhang Ziyi and Michelle Yeoh in a film again.... I also hope she will be the leading role^^

This has been shelved meaning that the production for it has stopped. Let's hope this movie goes through only if Zhang Ziyi is still in it!!!!
