26 Jul – Following the end of AMC's "Into the Badlands", director-producer Stephen Fung recently went back to directing again, this time for Netflix's new series, "Wu Assassins".

As reported on Mingpao, the filmmaker, who was asked to shoot the first two episodes of the new show, shared that he was interested to help with the project after his manager described the various elements of the franchise to him.

He also revealed that the experience of working on the production was different from his work on the previous show.

"I am working with a new team this time. I was looking forward to working with [Indonesian] actor Iko Uwais after watching his movie, "The Raid". I believe Iko was able to adapt to different types of action movie styles," he said.

Stephen also stated that he avoided putting in elements like dragon and phoenix in the series, saying that big cities in China are prosperous and do not necessarily have such symbols.

Premiering this 9 August, "Wu Assassins" follows the story of Kai Jin (Iko Uwais), a young Chinatown chef who becomes the Wu Assassin after an encounter with mystical spirit. He now has to use his skills to recover supernatural powers from five modern day criminals threatening to use them to destroy the world.
