Jin Dong, Joe Chen go grave-robbing in Candle in the Tomb

Daylight Entertainment’s latest web drama Candle in the Tomb 鬼吹灯之精绝古城 has released a new trailer and confirmed a premiere date of December 19th.

I was quite impressed with Chen Kun, Shu Qi and Huang Bo’s performances in Mojin: The Lost Legend 寻龙诀, and am hoping Jin Dong (Ode to Joy), Joe Chen (Stay With Me) and Zhao Da can bring something new to the table.

From the title, it seems like the web drama will only cover the first book in the series, though it’s unknown whether screenwriter Bai Yicong (The Lost Tomb) will also incorporate story lines from other books. Candle in the Tomb will fill the time slot vacated by When A Snail Falls in Love and run for 12 episodes.
