AMC has just released new Comic-Con International key art from their upcoming fall series, “Into the Badlands,” starring Daniel Wu. In addition to headlining, Wu also serves as an executive producer on the series. Check out the poster below!
An “Into the Badlands” Comic-Con panel will take place on Saturday, July 11 at 10:30 a.m. PT in Room 5AB. Panelists include: Executive Producers and Showrunners Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, Executive Producer and Director David Dobkin, Executive Producer and Fight Director Stephen Fung and cast members Daniel Wu (also an executive producer), Marton Csokas, Aramis Knight, Emily Beecham and Orla Brady.
Said to be a genre-bending martial arts series, “Into the Badlands” is very loosely based on the classic Chinese tale “Journey to the West.” In a land controlled by feudal barons, the series 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.
Emily Beecham (28 Weeks Later, The Village), Sarah Bolger (“The Tudors,” In America) and Oliver Stark (The Adventurer: The Curse of the Midas Box, My Hero) also star.
AMC has ordered six one-hour episodes, which will premiere in late 2015. The project was created by writers/showrunners Al Gough and Miles Millar (Shanghai Noon, “Smallville”). They’ll serve as executive producers along with David Dobkin (The Judge, Wedding Crashers, Shanghai Knights), Oscar-nominated producers Stacey Sher and Michael Shamberg (Pulp Fiction, Contagion), and Stephen Fung and Wu (Tai Chi Zero).
From AMC Studios, “Into the Badlands” will be distributed internationally by Entertainment One Television (eOne). If you missed the first look teaser that debuted back in March, check it out right here.
