The remake is titled Unknown Number and stars Du Chun as the detective from 1998 who is able to communicate with a modern day profiler (Wang Tianchen) through a magical cellphone. Li Xiaoran rounds out the trio as the current-day police detective who was once the hero’s colleague.

The Tencent web drama will release 2 eps every Wed-Fri.

(From the trailer, it seems like the remake hasn’t changed anything – even the music is the same.)
