- MAAC Interview with Michelle Yeoh
Some intersting excerpts:
MAAC: Our Fans heard that you had just finished filming with Jason Statham on 'Mechanic: Resurrection', Can you give us any little insights into that?
MICHELLE YEOH: He's fun, he (Statham) is very good at what he does. I actually only have a cameo role in that film, I really wanted to be able to do more because you know, with Jessica Alba, we had a nice time filming, we were in Thailand. I only really had about two weeks with them which was too short you know.
So I played the "reliable buddy", that when he's in trouble he needs to go to.
MAAC: We were hoping for you to have had a big role in that film.
MICHELLE YEOH: I know, I know. I think alot of people wanted that to have happened but maybe next time.
MAAC: Other than the 'Mechanic', is there anything else you are working on?
MICHELLE YEOH: I Just finished 'Marco Polo' season 2 which will be coming out in June. And then I did a movie with Ridley Scott as producer and his son is the director. It's called 'Morgan'.
MAAC: Is it a full on action film?
MICHELLE YEOH: It's a sci-fi thriller but not set in space, its on Earth. Its full on drama.
- In a recent Chinese interview Michelle said she will began filming a new film in China, hopefully in March or April.
