The Lost Tomb Reboot 盗墓笔记重启之极海听雷 announced that Zhu Yilong (The Story of Minglan) would be playing Wu Xie back in August, and has now confirmed new actor Huang Junjie (Unexpected, Fox in the Screen) as Zhang Qiling.
The story begins ten years after the events of the last book in the series, and focuses on their adventurous journey as they seek to unravel the mystery behind.
Wang Pangzi is played by Chen Minghao, who is reprising his role from this year’s Tomb of the Sea, the only Lost Tomb adaption that wasn’t widely panned by viewers and critics alike. Costars include Hu Jun as Wu Xie’s uncle, Baron Chen (Fights Break Sphere) as Black Glasses and Huang Mengying (TLTWTMPB) as Mute Girl.
Scripted by original author Nanpai Sanshu (Xu Lei) and directed by Pan Anzi (The Palace movie), the ~70 episode web drama is planning to stream on Youku in the Summer.
