Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon star Ziyi Zhang is in talks to reprise her role as Jen Yu in Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon II - The Green Destiny.

An insider claims that the actress' scenes will be shot as flashbacks to help explain what happened to her character. Donnie Yen has already signed on to star as Silent Wolf, with Michelle Yeoh reprising her Yu Shu Lien role from the original.

Woo-ping Yuen is directing from a screenplay by John Fusco, based on Du Lu Wang's book Iron Knight, Silver Vase, the fifth book in the Crane-Iron Pentalogy series, which spawned the original Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. We reported in May that production will begin next March in Asia.
