Candle in the Tomb: The Wrath of Time 鬼吹灯之怒晴湘西 which started filming inconspicuously two months ago finally confirms its main trio. Compared to the rumors which initially had Wu Chun attached to the project, I really have no complaints towards having Vengo Gao in the cast instead. Besides, getting two out of three castings right is not half bad at all.
Seeing as everyone seems determined to make a drama out of Tianxia Bachang’s 天下霸唱 Ghost Blows Out The Light novels each year, a quick tally brings us to 9 books in total (which includes Finding Hu Ba Yi that was made into a drama by iQiYi). Tencent is onto season 3 of its drama adaptations which must mean that they’re doing something right.
The new adventures brings Hu Bayi face to face with an older Chen Yulou who recalls his grave-robbing days and focuses on that story. It is led by Pan Yueming (Day & Night), Vengo Gao (Legend of Fuyao) and Xin Zhilei (Mr. Right).
