The two book series that set off the tomb-raiding craze will be both made into a series of films.
Among the two, The Ghouls: Code of the Dragon 鬼吹灯之寻龙诀 will be directed by Wu’ershan (Painted Skin II). The film, based on the first book of the second series, is produced by Huayi Brothers, Wanda, and Enlight Media, and is set for a December 2015 release.
Meanwhile, The Lost Tombs 盗墓笔记 will be produced by our favorite Huanrui along with Filmko Entertainment. Part 1 of 8 is planning for a summer 2016 release.
What do you think? Which one are you looking forward to the most?
The Ghouls concept trailer:
P.S. For those of you faint in the heart, The Lost Tombs actually has real ghosts while The Ghouls does not. And for those of you who are righteous in the heart, The Ghouls feature archaeologists who are forced to search the graves rather than actual grave robbers.
