Netease productions, on August 6, 2020, released a trailer of its much anticipated remake of the classic Chinese epic film “The Yin-Yang Master”.
This version of The Yin-Yang Master tells the tale of an Onmyoji, a specialist in magic, whose demi-human identity may be the key to defeating a reawakened Demon Emperor after entering a contract with a group of otherworldly monsters.
Unlike its predecessor The Yin-Yang Master: Dream Of Eternity which was based on the novel Onmyoji, written by Japanese author Baku Yumemakura, this current 2020 version, which is directed by Li Weiran, will be based on the RPG game adaptation of Onmyoji and seeks to bring a magnificent fantasy world to life.
This epic tale boasts an elite cast line up with actors Chen Kun, Zhou Xun, William Chan, Qu Chuxiao, Wang Likun, Shen Yue, Wang Zixuan all having confirmed participation.
Remarkably, The Yin-Yang Master also marks the 10th film and drama collaboration between veteran actors Zhou Xun and Chen Kun across a span of 20 years.
The Yin-Yang Master is due to be released in late 2020.
Let me know in the comments if you will be watching this adaptation when it is released.
