Jet Li is going to be in the new Mummy movie, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emporer, which is filming now, and the director Rob Cohen posted a blog item on his website. Rob says,
Today, I shot Jet Li on his black stallion riding into battle in his jade armor. He looked nothing short of an Emperor. He has been totally professional and warm to me and the entire crew, like the prince he truly is.
Michelle Yeoh is also in the movie as a wizard. They’ve dyed her hair gray (see photo). Here’s the plot synopsis from imdb:
In the Far East, trouble-seeking father-and-son duo Rick (Fraser) and Alex O’Connell (Ford) unearth the mummy of the first Emperor of Qin (Li) — a shape-shifting entity who was cursed by a wizard (Yeoh) centuries ago.
