Actor Jason Scott Lee (“Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story”, “Lilo & Stitch”) has been cast to play the villain in Disney’s upcoming live action version of “Mulan”.

From The Hollywood Reporter:

Jason Scott Lee is going from playing Bruce Lee to a villainous Khan, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned.
The American actor, who is of Chinese and Hawaiian descent, has joined Disney’s live-action Mulan as Bori Khan, a warrior leader who is intent on avenging his father’s death. He joins Gong Li on the antagonists’ side, while the heroine’s (Liu Yifei) team includes Donnie Yen, relative New Zealand newcomer Yoson An and Marco Polo‘s Ron Yuan. Jet Li, Pitch Perfect‘s Utkarsh Ambudkar, New Zealand actress Xana Tang and comic actor Chum Ehelepola round out the cast.
Jason Reed, Chris Bender, Jake Weiner and executive producer Bill Kong are producing the Niki Caro-helmed film, scheduled for a March 27, 2020 release. Executives Tendo Nagenda and Jessica Virtue are overseeing the production for Disney.
Lee is no stranger to Disney, having starred as Mowgli in Buena Vista’s 1994 live-action The Jungle Book and voiced a character in 2002’s animated Lilo & Stitch. But he may be best known for portraying the lead in Universal’s 1993 biopic Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story. His recent credits include Netflix’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny and indie film Burn Your Maps, starring Vera Farmiga and Jacob Tremblay.
