Here’s your weekly bit of irony: The star of one of the best films of 2000 will be voicing a character from one of the worst films of 2000 (or ever).

Chow Yun-Fat (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) will play the voice of Terl in the upcoming animated version of Battlefield Earth. SciFi Wire has more details including confirmation of a SEQUEL!

How can such a terrible movie spawn a TV show AND a sequel? For those of you that believe in all that Scientology conspiracy stuff, file this under “See, we told you so!” I, for one, am keeping my child away from this one.
