The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Li Bingbing (Resident Evil: Retribution, Transformers: Age of Extinction) has signed on to appear in the Chinese superhero movie Realm, which is based upon an original idea from comic book legend Stan Lee and is scripted by Alex Litvak (Predators, The Three Muskateers).
“What a kick it has been to create our first Chinese female superhero, and an empowering one at that,” said Lee. “It has been such a fun experience bringing to life an international woman character, and the ability to do so has been different from anything we’ve ever done! I am thoroughly enjoying every minute of it.”
“Stan Lee’s imagination has brought the world some of its most iconic pop-culture stories and characters. It gives us incredible pleasure and excitement to present his latest creation,” adds Mark Gao, Chairman of Fundamental Films, who will produce the film alongside Stan Lee Global Entertainment.
