The Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon prequel will shoot in New Zealand.

Film Auckland chairman Alex Lee confirmed that The Weinstein Company's martial arts film The Green Destiny will take advantage of the country's newly increased production incentives.

He told Radio New Zealand that the changes to the country's Large Budget Screen Production Grant subsidy - which now allows major productions to claim back up to 25% of their budget - was instrumental in getting the film greenlit.

Michelle Yeoh will reprise her role as Yu Shu Lien in the movie, with Donnie Yen signed on as Silent Wolf.

James Cameron's Avatar sequels will also take advantage of New Zealand's incentives.

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon II: The Green Destiny will be directed by Woo-ping Yuen, who was the fight choreographer on the original 2000 movie. »
