Filming for the much-anticipated Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon prequel will begin in July, without original director Ang Lee.

The project, entitled The Green Destiny, will be set before the events in the 2000 martial arts classic, and Michelle Yeoh is set to reprise her role as warrior Yu Shu Lien.

With the Oscar-winning Ang Lee not attached to the project, the Crouching Tiger... action coordinator Yuen Woo-ping is set to direct in his place.

WENN says filming is scheduled to begin in Auckland, New Zealand in July.
