Well, remember this adaptation franchise of the novel Ghost Blows Out the Candle? NO? How could you not know? Lol. It has two prior movie adaptations; one with Chen Kun and one with Mark Zhao. Now to complete the routine for all upcoming projects, it gets a drama version starring ♥ Jin Dong ♥ (YES! I AM that fond of this man!) and the lovely Joe Chen Qiao En, who is lining up her works to romance the pants off all the men in Nirvana in Fire. LOL!
Candle in the Tomb (网剧鬼吹灯) held a press conference today and I’m surprised they have enough footage for a quick teaser too!
Stills from Press Conference:
I think everyone knows the story by now, if not, watch one of the movies! In a nutshell, Jin Dong plays Hu Ba Yi (roles previously played by Chen Kun and Mark Zhao), and Qiao En plays Shirley Yang (previously played by Shu Qi and Yao Chen). She was raised in America and returns to China when her father went missing while exploring tombs. Together with Ba Yi and his friend, they recruit a team of brave individuals to search the tombs and unleash the darkness from each one.
In blue is Zhao Da.
Just getting close with the gentle giant. 🙂
Script written by Bai Yi Cong (The Lost Tomb). *shake shake*
