Round-up of upcoming Jin Yong projects to warily anticipate

I didn’t zoom like XDramasX told us to when she posted this, but this poster for the upcoming Return of the Condor Heroes series is like a hundred stabs to the heart of Guo Xiang fans.

Wuxia lord and savior Jin Yong, may he rest in peace, is finally getting a big screen revival recently, with at least eight mostly Hong Kong films in pre-production right now.  In addition, at least seven upcoming dramas are currently or will soon be filmed. Hey producers, I’m still waiting for someone to pick-up the cyberpunk wuxia version of Laughing in the Wu Dun

  1. there are also Young Fox (fox volant in the snowy mountain) by Zhang Jizhong and A Deadly secret adaptation by Fan Xinman
    undisclosed project – 835 films. –> i believe this is DGSD movie version

    • Thanks! I’ve added them. It looks like Fan Xinman just got the movie rights to DGSD last summer/fall, so I think the 835 films ones will be separate since they bulk brought rights to several movies.

      Also found a couple more dramas in pre-production and added them.
