Huang Xiaoming Stars in 2nd Chinese Live-Action "City Hunter" Film

An earlier live-action adaptation from 1993 stars Jackie Chan

Another live-action film adaptation of City Hunter, an action / comedy manga by Tsukasa Hojo about a skilled but lecherous private detective, is currently in development in China. The film will star Huang Xiaoming in the lead role of Ryo Saeba, and it is shooting for a release date in December of 2018.

 

 

The original City Hunter manga was serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump manga magazine from 1985 - 1991. The series has been adapted into numerous anime TV series, films, and OAV series in the Eighties and Nineties. City Hunter has also been adapted into a Hong Kong live-action film starring Jackie Chan in 1993 and a Korean live-action TV drama in 2011.
