It looks like Summer’s new project has been revealed by producer John Wirth himself. In a short tweet he welcomed Summer on board of his new show Wu Assassins. The show has been described as a sci-fi martial arts drama starring Iko Uwais (The Raid, Star Wars: The Force Awakens) and Byron Mann (The Expanse) and centers around a wannabe chef who teams up with a homicide detective to unravel an ancient mystery and take down supernatural assassins. The show which is produced for Netflix will have 10 episodes and also stars Katheryn Winnick (Vikings), Lewis Tan (Into the Badlands), Tommy Flanagan (Sons of Anarchy), Tzi Ma (Meditation Park), Lawrence Kao (The Walking Dead), Celia Au (Revenge of the Green Dragons) . The show should hit Netflix sometime 2019. There is no official announcement yet, but it is very likely that Summer is going to be in this one. The imdb description also seems to have a few more information:
A warrior chosen as the latest and last Wu Assassin must search for the powers of an ancient triad and restore balance in San Francisco’s Chinatown.
Here is the official info on Netflix:
The last in a line of Chosen Ones, a wannabe chef teams up with a homicide detective to unravel an ancient mystery and take down supernatural assassins.
Deadline has a few information on some of the characters:
Kao is set to play Tommy Wah, a drug addict in search of redemption as he is passed over by his parents in favor of his younger sister who runs the family business. Au will step into the role of Ying Ying, a quirky, young woman who is wise beyond her years and assists Kai Jin in his mission.
Winnick will play Christine “C.G.” Gavin, an undercover cop caught in the middle of a gang war that’s breaking out in Chinatown. Tan will portray Lu Xin Lee, a suave, fierce intelligent leader who owns and operates his own custom garage a la West Coast Customs and runs a car theft ring for the Triad.
Flanagan is Alec McCullough, an international crime boss with a mysterious interest in San Francisco’s Chinatown. Ma will portray Mr. Young, a kindly Chinatown grocer and a mentor to Kai.
