Viy (known internationally as Forbidden Empire and in the UK as Forbidden Kingdom), is a 2014 dark fantasy film produced by Russian and Ukraine Film Group and Marins Group Entertainment. This was followed in 2019 by a sequel entitled Journey to China: The Mystery of Iron Mask. Both films star Jason Flemyng and Charles Dance. The sequel also features Rutger Hauer (in one of his final films before his death), Jackie Chan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Helen Yao. The film series is loosely based on the Nikolai Gogol story of the same name, which tells of the exploits of Cartographer Jonathan Green.
