Late last year saw a staunch new effort in reimagining a bygone era of New York City based the work of author Henry Chang, with crowdfunding efforts toward independent pilot/short, A Father’s Son. Having brought in the likes of actors Tzi Ma (Netflix’s Wu Assassins) and Perry Yung (Cinemax’s Warrior), director Patrick Chen now introduces fans to the hopeful birth of a new screen hero in New York City police detective Jack Yu, introducing famed actor and comedian Ronny Chieng debuting the character in dramatic fashion.
Conclusively, I couldn’t be more proud of Koji this week, and that brings us to the longstanding developments of Cinemax’s upcoming ten-episode martial arts drama, Warrior which is set to go before cameras in South Africa on October 22. Netflix series Fauda helmer Assaf Bernstein is directing from a script by Banshee creator Jonathan Tropper, in turn inspired by the unproduced work of late martial artist multihyphenate, entertainer and film legend Bruce Lee, and has since been shepherded by daughter Shannon Lee, founder and CEO of Bruce Lee Enterprises. Lee is executive producing as will Tropper via his Tropper Ink Productions banner, and Lin along with Danielle Woodrow hailing from Perfect Storm Entertainment.
