Freddy vs Jason Director Next For Crouching Tiger Sequel?

Much like fellow Director Ang Lee, Ronny Yu is a very successful and visionary talent from his home land of Hong Kong for which he made a huge name for himself internationally. His success at home was parlayed into Hollywood offers which eventually landed him his first U.S. film Warriors of Virtue, then onto Bride Of Chucky, the Sam Jackson film Formula 51, and then the Horror team-up Freddy vs Jason. Now he may be heading back to some martial arts madness.

The yet-to-be titled sequel to Ang Lee's 2000 martial arts fantasy, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, is set to begin production in May of this year. According to Deadline, The Weinstein Company will produce the film  with Freddy vs Jason Director Ronny Yu in talks to direct.

Crouching Tiger was based on the fourth book in Wang Du Lu's Crane-Iron series, it is said that this film will follow the fifth book, Silver Vase, Iron Knight, which continues the adventures of Yu Shu Lien (played by Michelle Yeoh in Lee's film). At this time, it is unknown whether she or any of the first Crouching Tiger film talent will be returning.
