So excited to be part of the AMC family. After 60 something films I'm doing my first TV series! Check out the article from AMC has tapped Hong Kong actor Daniel Wu to play the lead of its direct-to-series martial arts drama Badlands (working title). Wu also will serve as an executive producer on the six-episode series, loosely based on the Chinese tale Journey To The West. In a land controlled by feudal barons, Badlands tells the story of a ruthless, well-trained warrior named Sunny (Wu) and a young boy who embark on a journey across a dangerous land to find enlightenment. Wu joins previously announced series regulars Emily Beecham, Sarah Bolger and Oliver Stark. David Dobkin is directing. Badlands was created by writers-showrunners Al Gough and Miles Millar (Shanghai Noon, Smallville), who serve as executive producers along with Dobkin, Stacey Sher and Michael Shamberg, Stephen Fung and Wu for AMC Studios. Wu is a California-born, Hong Kong-based Chinese-American actor, director, producer and scholar in the Chinese martial arts discipline of wushu. He moved to Hong Long after graduating from the University of Oregon in 1997. He has been featured in more than 60 films and won the Hong Kong prize as Best Director for his 2006 feature, The Heavenly Kings (Sei dai tinwong), his directorial debut.
