Sep. 8 2010 China Times - Jerry Yan Hopes to Team Up with Zhang Ziyi in [Hua Mulan]

Jerry Yan has turned down three idol dramas in hope to join the cast of "Hua Mulan" leading by Zhang Ziyi. He is reportedly actively preparing himself for the role including brushing up his English skills.

Hollywood hitmaker Jan de Bont, the director of... “Speed,” “Twister” and “Lara Croft: Tomb Raider”, has signed up to direct Zhang Ziyi in an independently-produced, English-language co-production of the classic tale of Hua Mulan, the legendary young heroine soldier who joins an all-male army. De Bont will attempt to bring romance, action and drama to screenwriter John Blickstead’s re-creation of the Chinese Joan of Arc story that was first described in a 6th century poem.

“Mulan” will be co-produced by Movie Plus Productions of Canada, Global Film Finance of the U.K., Beijing-based Bona International Film Group and SIMF Pictures, with Zhang, Ling Lucas and Beaver Kwei, the producers who brought China Zhang’s 2009 romantic comedy boxoffice hit “Sophie’s Revenge,” directed by Eva Jin. "Mulan" is set to start shooting this fall in Beijing and will complete by next January.

Zhang Ziyi will once again speak English in the film. Jerry Yan has turned down "Skip Beat", "Coffee Prince Taipei", and "Material Queen". It is reported that he will team up with Zhang Ziyi in "Mulan". His spokesperson turned down the request for comment yesterday.
