    Daniel Wu leads American series "Badlands", an adaptation to "Journey to the West"

    American cable channel AMC recently announced that they will be producing a martial arts drama, based on Chinese tale "Journey to the West", named "Badlands" (tentative title). The male lead of this short series will be Daniel Wu, a character named "Sunny". He will also be serving as an executive producer along with Stephen Fung.

    According to sources, the drama will be loosely based on the Chinese ancient myth, "Journey to the West". However, the adaptation will be quite different from the original story that it may be hard to see shadows of the original story. The plot describes Daniel Wu's character, Sunny as a warrior with high martial art skills, and will create a team with a little boy. They will find enlightenment through a journey filled with obstacles. There are rumours that as the executive producers, Daniel Wu and Stephen Fung will be bringing in their martial arts team to the series.

    Other cast of the series include Emily Beecham, Sarah Bolger and Oliver Stark. The director will be David Dobkin. "Badlands" is created by writers-showrunners Al Gough and Miles Millar (Shanghai Noon, Smallville). They will also be on the executive producer team with Stephen, Daniel, David Dobkin, Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher.

    "Badlands" will be a 6 episode series.

    A cinematographer was killed on Wednesday in Hong Kong during the filming of Jackie Chan-starring film “Skiptrace.” Chan Kwok-hung is understood to have drowned in an accident that occurred when a boat he was on capsized off Lantau Island. According to the South China Morning Post, it is understood to have happened around 3am local time. Seven other film crew were on board, but they managed to swim the 30 meters to shore. Neither Jackie Chan nor co-star Fan Bingbing are believed to have been on board at the time.

    51-year-old Chan Kwok-hung, who was working on the upcoming film “Skiptrace,” which features Jackie Chan, “Jackass” star Jonny Knoxville, and Chinese actress Fan Bingbing. Hong Kong police told the South China Morning Post that a 50-foot vessel carrying eight crew members capsized 100 feet from the island's shore. Seven other crew members were able to swim to safety, but Chan was later discovered unconscious. The paper reported that Jackie Chan was not believed to have been on board at the time of the accident. Chan Kwok-hung had worked in Hong Kong's film industry for 20 years, and had previously worked with prominent local directors Stephen Chow, Jingle Ma and Chan Chi-ying, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

    “Skiptrace,” is a joint production between U.S., Hong Kong, and mainland Chinese companies, and tells the story of a Hong Kong detective (Chan) who teams up with an American gambler (Knoxville) to save his niece (Bingbing) and take down a local crime boss, according to Deadline.com. At the time of writing, Chan's official website carries no comment on the death. Jackie Chan is mainland China's most-recognizable screen actor, and is famed for his outlandish stunts and frenetic fight choreography.
