4. Yimou Zhang
Why him? Because we want to mix things up a little. He’s the man who made House Of Flying Daggers and he’d bring a very different feeling to the film.
Think of the insane action! The lunatic fight scenes! He’s also solid when it comes to dramatics.
Why not him? While he can handle all of that, we worry that he wouldn’t want to attempt a big CG movie. And it's hard to make giant Krakens and squid-people without a computer.
Sample Jerry Bruckheimer note: “Zhang! I know stunt regulations in China are a little more lax, but the unions are going crazy at the danger levels! No, five drownings is NOT the legal limit. Zero is! Make sure everyone survives!”
