There's a strong rumour going round that Michelle Yeoh Choo-kheng will join the cast of The Mummy 3, alongside Jet Li, in the second sequel of the adventure series. According to some papers and internet sources, Yeoh was chosen over Gong Li and Zhang Ziyi for the role of a wise woman who assists Brendon Fraser's character in defeating a new mummy monster found in a terracotta warrior burial site on the mainland. But don't expect much of the movie to be shot in Xian or elsewhere on the mainland. A studio in Montreal will double when production is expected to start this summer.
