The film centers on the love story of Zhuge Liang, a famous strategist during China's Three Kingdoms period, and his wife.
It was confirmed last month that Hong Kong actress Cecilia Cheung and mainland comedian Xiao Shenyang would play the leads.
The film's prequel, the 2002 costume drama "The Lion Roars," also featured Fan and Cheung. In that film, Fan portrayed a voluptuous princess who is the love rival of the lead character played by Cheung.
Fan Bingbing's role in the new film has yet to be determined.
"The Lion Roars 2" is expected to begin shooting in July.
