Fearless follows Huo Yuanjia who is spurred by the plights of those around him to stand up for his country. After barely escaping with his life, he forms the Jing Wu Men to promote Chinese martial arts. 

The five students of the famous federation known as Jing Wu Men are played by Jia HongweiXu ZhengguoKou Chia-juiZhou Bin and Zhou Yu Jing Hao.  Zhang Chunzhong and Ashton Chen who made a career in the martial arts genre round up the cast.

I've only seen the 2006 movie version of the same and did a little bit of background research on the character after. Apparently, the movie loosely based on the martial artist's life has angered his descendants, earning Jet Li a lawsuit for missing some important figures and for the way Huo Yuanjia was portrayed. It leads back to the question of the significance of historical accuracy in these kind of adaptations. 

Regardless, with a cast like this, expectations are surely high for this new drama to bring an impressive display of traditional martial arts choreography. 

Release date: TBA iQiYi
