Deadline has TWC’s official press release (which preceded their Cannes press conference), revealing the picture’s title, Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon II – The Green Destiny, and director, Yuen Wo Ping.

Michelle Yeoh will reprise the role of Yu Shu Lien, while Donnie Yen will play Silent Wolf.

Yuen is best known as the iconic martial arts choreographer behind Drunken Master, The Matrix, Kill Bill, and the original Crouching Tiger. He has, however, helmed numerous films in the past.

The Green Destiny is based on the fifth book in Wang Du Lu’s Crane-Iron Pentalogy series, from which its predecessor was also born.
