The Weinstein’s doing live-action version
This girl’s busier than a taxman in June.
Zhang Ziyi, recently seen turning men to goo in “Memoirs of a Geisha”, has signed a three-picture deal with Bob and Harvey (Weinstein), with one of the pics being a live-action version of “Mulan”.
The movie, made into a Disney toon about eight years back, tells of. Wang Hui-ling (“Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon”, “The Battle of Red Cliff”) has been removed from the hip of John Woo long enough, to write the thing.
Another of the films that Ziyi is apparently in talks to do for the company is the recently-mooted “Seven Samurai” redo.
The new $20 million-dollar “Mulan” is scheduled to get underway in Feb 2007. No start date on the “Samurai” Xerox, yet.
