TVB producer Joe Chan recently confirmed rumours that he is currently developing a new series based on the “Sutra of Forty-two Chapters”.

As reported on HK01, the producer, who was asked about the new project, stated that it will not be a costume drama in the likes of Jin Yong’s “The Deer and the Cauldron”, of which the Sutra of Forty-two Chapters was key to the Manchu’s treasure, but instead will be a modern comedy.

“The drama is currently in preparation. As for the cast, it is not convenient to reveal too much. But the drama does have something to do with “The Deer and the Cauldron”,” he said.
