Stan The Man is teaming up with Chinese production and distribution outfit Fundamental Films through his Stan Lee Global Entertainment imprint for Realm, a new movie set to star Li Bingbing. Plot details are under wraps for now, but the film is based on an original idea by Lee with the script to be written by Alex Litvak (Predators). Li will produce alongside Stan Lee Global Entertainment’s Gill Champion and Fundamental’s Gregory Ouanhon. Ouanhon and Champion are overseeing for their respective companies, and Fundamental’s Gary Glushon will serve as executive producer.
The announcement of Realm comes a week after the former president and Chairman of Marvel comics revealed he will be publishing a new comic project through William Shatner’s Shatner Singularity imprint, the details of which will be revealed this weekend at Stan Lee Comikaze in Los Angeles.
