Macau born actress Isabella Leong is set to star in “Mummy 3” according to some recent reports.
Isabella is reported to be starring as Michelle Yeoh’s daughter. Isabella’s agent refused to comment on this matter, which normally means that the news is true; otherwise the agent would have denied it.
Earlier last week another actress Crystal Liu was rumored to star in Mummy 3 as well. From the reports it seems that Isabella is taking a different role… but it’s just a guess; everything can only be confirmed when it’s officially announced.
Mummy 3 also stars Brendan Fraser, Jet Li, Maria Bello and Luke Ford. The movie will start filming in July in Canada and China.
Recent rumors indicate that young Chinese actress Liu Yifei might be starring in Hollywood movie “Mummy 3: Curse of the Dragon.”
Besides Brendan Fraser, Asian stars Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh have agreed to join the movie. The producer is still looking for a young Asian actress to fit in a supporting role, and Yifei has caught their attention.
Liu Yifei is currently filming “Forbidden Kingdom” with Jackie Chan and Jet Li, while the filming of Mummy 3 is set to start filming in China in August… so the schedule might be a bit tight. However, since that Jet Li is also tied with both movies, I doubt the schedule is not an issue for Yifei.
Question is, how true is the rumour?
