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.
