Rising young actress, Isabella Leong, will join the star-studded cast of Mummy: Curse of the Dragon, the third installment in The Mummy movie series.
The 18-year-old film star from Hong Kong will act as the daughter of a wizard, played by Malaysian actress, Michelle Yeoh, and together they will fight the mummy, played by Kung Fu star Jet Li, along with his mummy troops. The mummy is China's first Qin Dynasty Emperor, now a shape-shifting entity, who was cursed by the wizard centuries ago.
Leong also recently showed up at the 57th Berlin Film Festival in February with the movie Isabella, in which she plays the illegitimate child of a Macao policeman. She is expected to fly to Canada as the latest Mummy installment starts shooting in July, and will come back to China to shoot in Xi'an's Terracotta Warriors museum. The movie is scheduled to open to the public in July 2008.
