When we last saw Michelle Yeoh on the big screen, she was teaching Zhang Ziyi the finer points of how to stop a man in his tracks with a blink of the eyes in "Memoirs of a Geisha." According to Variety, Yeoh has signed on to appear in "True North" and "Babylon A.D."
In "True North," she will star alongside Sean Bean and Michelle Krusiec in a story about "a woman and a young girl whose barren existence is disrupted by a soldier." The pic, directed by Asif Kapadia ("The Warrior") will start shooting this week in Norway.
Yeoh will play a nun who is taking care of a little girl who may have been injected with a deadly virus in "Babylon A.D." The movie, based on Maurice Dantec’s novel "Babylon Babies," will be directed by Mathieu Kassovitz ("Gothika") and stars Vin Diesel.
