Michelle Yeoh Says She Is Down For The ‘Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon’ Sequel

But She Hasn't Been Approached Yet

A little while back I got super-psyched because we heard news about a sequel to the critically-acclaimed 2000 film Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. I was a little/hugely bummed to hear that Ang Lee was not directing the sequel, but I also said that if some of the old cast members were on board I’d be totally down for it. Michelle Yeoh (who played Yu Shu Lien) is being honored at the Asian Film Awards tonight and she recently spoke out about her interest in the new movie. Click inside to learn more!

This Could Be Sweet
19th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards - Red Carpet

Okay, so this is fun news. As y’all know, Mad Men is getting ready to come back to AMC for its highly-anticipated sixth season, and I am crazy excited. I’m still making my way through all the past seasons on Netflix, but, like many others, I’ve fallen in love with the show and… well, we all have our favorites. Elisabeth Moss AKA Peggy is my absolute favorite… like in that creepy way where I kinda/definitely know exactly what I’d say to her if I ever saw her on the street, lol. So I was really excited to hear that she’s been cast alongside Ted Danson (another one of my faves) in a new movie. Click inside to learn more!

Christopher Nolan signs on to Produce the Film?!
