Iko Uwais and Mark Dacascos to star in Netflix’s Wu Assassins series

Wu Assassins Season 1

Wu Assassins Season 1

Mark Dacascos and Iko Uwais are both legends in the realm of martial arts films. Dacascos can be seen as the main antagonist in John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, and Uwais helped raised the bar on martial arts action with The Raid and The Raid 2. The two are teaming up together for a new Netflix series called Wu Assassins, and a new trailer has been released.

The story feels a bit out there, especially since it’s about a chef who channels the power of a dead monk, but martial arts fans can’t pass up on Uwais using the power of Dacascos.

Katheryn Winnick is also starring in the series, and she has made a name for herself in History’s scripted drama, Vikings. She also trains in martial arts, and hopefully, fans will get to see her show off her skills.

Synopsis: Wu Assassins follows Kai Jin, a young Chinatown chef in present-day San Francisco, as he becomes entangled with the Chinese Triad’s pursuit of deadly ancient powers known as the “Wu Xing.” After an encounter with a mystical spirit, Kai reluctantly becomes the Wu Assassin, using his enhanced martial arts skills to recover supernatural powers from five modern-day criminals threatening to use them to destroy the world.

The series will contain 10 episodes, each lasting 45 minutes. It is created by executive producers John Wirth and Tony Krantz, with Stephen Fung, Michael Frislev, and Chad Oakes also serving as executive producers. The show is directed by Stephen Fung, Roel Reiné, Toa Fraser, Katheryn Winnick, Tony Krantz, and Michael Nankin. It is written by John Wirth, Cameron Litvack, David Simkins, Julie Benson, Shawna Benson, Yalun Tu, and Jessica Chou.

It stars Iko Uwais as Kai Jin, Byron Mann (Street Fighter) as Uncle Six, Li Jun Li as Jenny Wah, Celia Au as Ying Ying, Lewis Tan as Lu Xin Lee, Lawrence Kao as Tommy Wah, Tommy Flanagan as Alec McCullough, Katheryn Winnick as Christine Gavin, Tzi Ma as Mr. Young, JuJu Chan as Zan, Summer Glau as Miss Jones, Robin McLeavy as Maggie McCullough, Travis Caldwell as Gideon.

Wu Assassins premieres on Netflix on August 8, 2019.
