Hong Kong filmmaker Derek Tsang, son of actor-producer Eric Tsang, is set to helm the Netflix adaptation of “Three-Body Problem”.

The director, known for his movies like “Better Days” and “Soul Mate”, will be helming the series based on Liu Cixin’s sci-fi trilogy, which tells the story of what happens when humanity discovers other entities in the universe.


Aside from directing, Derek is also set to co-executive produce the said project.

The series was first announced last year, with “Game of Thrones” alumni David Benioff and D.B. Weis as its showrunners. It was later reported that actress Eiza Gonzalez is in talks to play a role in the series.

A multi-award winning filmmaker, Derek’s highest achievement was his film being nominated at the 2020 Academy Awards in the Best International Film category for his movie, “Better Days”.
