Wow, remember the news I wrote about a few weeks ago? Well, now it’s set in stone. I still can’t believe he actually signed a project that extends for 8 years, without knowing whether it’s going to be a success or not. It’s a risky move, me thinks. Now if they shoot in 3D, the production company must have real faith in it (TBBT joke). The TV series will follow American annual airing schedule, consisting of 8 seasons, each one is about 12 episodes long. When asked why he decided so early on, Li Yi Feng, replies, “The character Wu Xie and the premise of The Lost Tomb is attractive to me. Being able to take on such an interesting role is a lucky opportunity for any actors. Moreover, I think selling myself to Kennedy Xu (the author) is worth it.”
For your sake and for ours, I hope it’s worth the blinding dedication, honey.
Yesterday, the production team released “potential” photos of Li Yi Feng’s wardrobe, and must I say, they better change his clothing STAT. Those are not the definition of badass. They are tomb-raiders, not water boys!
Netizens have commented that his all-black outfits + mask reminded them of Lee Min Ho‘s outfits in City Hunter. Yea, I can definitely see the resemblance but let’s not go so far yet because I’m not sure Li Yi Feng has the nimble and precise fighting skills that the former possessed and showed.
No news on the leading lady yet, but names have naturally been dropped here and there – the top ones are Yang Mi and Tang Yan. Oh c’mon, we have many other Chinese actresses, let’s rotate! I have nothing against the ladies, but I like new pairings. Yang Mi have collaborated with him in Legend of the Ancient Sword and Tang Yan recently finished filming with him in The Legend of Fragrance. New face please!
