Chinese movie star Li Bingbing, who has recently appeared in Hollywood films like Transformers: Age of Extinction and as Ada Wong in Resident Evil: Retribution, has landed the lead role in Realm, an superhero film based on an original idea from comic book icon Stan Lee.
"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."
Predators and The Three Muskateers scribe Alex Litvak is penning the screenplay.
"Stan Lee’s imagination has brought the world some of its most iconic pop-culture stories and characters," said Mark Gao, Chairman of Fundamental Films. "It gives us incredible pleasure and excitement to present his latest creation."
The film is being produced by China-based Fundamental Films and Stan Lee Global Entertainment. Fundamental’s Gregory Ouanhon is in charge of production and Gary Glushon is the Executive Producer. Gill Champion from Stan Lee Global Entertainment will also produce and so will the film's star Li Bingbing.
