Zhang Ziyi to Join Jackie Chan and Jet Li?

by | April 4, 2007 | Comments

We’ve been hearing a lot about the eventual pairing of Jackie Chan and Jet Li in an upcoming film, but now we have some new casting buzz: Could Zhang Ziyi be in line to join the boys?

Sources indicate that Ms. Ziyi is in early talks to play "White Haired Demoness" in the as-yet untitled movie. (Chinese newspapers are calling it "Kings of Kung Fu.") Those same newspapers state that two female roles are available, one called "Golden Sparrow" (too young for Ms. Ziyi) and another called, yep, "White Haired Demoness."

Apparently Michael Angarano is also on board the project, and he’ll be playing a young hero who joins up with Lu Yan (Chan) and Silent Monk (Li) to try and rescue the Monkey King (Li again, it seems).

Lastly we learn that Bai Ling may be lining up for a role, as are actresses Li Bingbing, Ruby Lin, Liu Yifei and Fann Wong. More information on this project as it becomes available … and confirmed.
