It was getting a little worrisome around Reject HQ – what with Jan de Bont’s long hiatus from work. Fortunately, it appears as though the Speed and Speed 2: Cruise Control director is back in the business, totally still alive, and ready to helm the highly anticipated live-action Mulan adaptation starring Zhang Ziyi.

That means, of course, that there will now be a bunch of explosions and a cow floating in a tornado in 2nd Century China. The Han Dynasty will never see it coming.

De Bont last worked on Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life back in 2003, and 7 years is just too long to go without him. The film starts shooting this fall in China. [THR]
