The project, directed by Daniel Lee, is loosely based on classic Chinese novel "Romance of the Three Kingdoms" by Luo Guanzhong.

"Three Kingdoms: Resurrection of the Dragon" is a dramatic chronicle of Chinese history from 184 to 280 AD, during which China split into three kingdoms: the Wei, Shu and Wu.

Chinese actor Leon Lai will play Zhao Yu, the chief military commander loyal to founder of the Wu Kingdom, Sun Quan. Sammo Hung will play Zhang Fei, another warrior loyal to Liu Bei, founder of the kingdom of Shu. Hung will also serve as the film's choreographer. Maggie Q plays Cao Ying, the granddaughter of the warlord Cao Cao, emperor of the kingdom of Wei.

Shooting of the project will start next year in China.
