My Own Swordsman director to film Gu Long comedy wuxia

Who says heroes must be lonely?
Our heroes are happy.

So opens Gu Long’s favorite novel of his, Happy Heroes 欢乐英雄.  The first TV adaptation of novel, titled Growing Pains of Swordsmen, has begun filming and will star Bai Ke, Lan Yingying, Sun Yizhou, and Yang Le as a quartet of happy heroes in their various escapades. The series is directed Shang Jing and “written by” of My Own Swordsman, so I expect it might be similar in tone. The original listed writer was Ning Caishen of  My Own Swordsman but has been changed to Shang Jing after Ning Caishen got banned for doing drugs, but I suspect the script may still be based off his script. The two’s tone should work well with the novel, which is  episodic and an attempt by Gu Long to focus on the more human and mundane stories of the wuxia world.
