6 Aug – As reported before, the award-winning "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon" is getting a sequel. Harry Shum Jr., who plays the smooth dancing Mike Chang on "Glee", is now confirmed to star as a smooth kicking martial arts hero, Tie-Fang, on "Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon II: The Green Destiny".

In this martial arts movie sequel, Shum will be joining Donnie Yen and Michelle Yeoh as part of the movie's four warriors. Yen will be playing the role of Silent Wolf and Michelle Yeoh will be playing Yu Shu-Lien. There is currently no word on who will be playing the fourth warrior Snow Vase as well as the villain Hades Dai.

"Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon 2" is set 20 years after the first movie. It tells the story of the four warriors once again going after the villain to retrieve the Green Destiny sword.

Shooting has started in New Zealand since last month and the movie will also be partially shot in China.

Shum also recently wrapped up filming on another drama "Revenge of the Green Dragons", in which he worked alongside Ray Liotta.
