Famed Hong Kong filmmaker Wong Kar Wai (“In the Mood for Love,” “The Grandmaster”) has signed a deal with Huanxi Media Group to both produce and co-direct an eighteen-episode original drama series for digital distribution in China and around the globe.
Huanxi has agreed to spend a quite lavish $3.1-3.9 million per episode. The first twelve will make up the first season, while the remaining six will form the second.
The first season is expected to complete production next year. Sadly no further casting or story details were disclosed.
