Director Wu Zi Niu (Zhen Guan Chang Ge, Tian Xia/Ming Dynasty, Tian Xia Liang Cang, Han Xue Bao Ma, etc.) is remaking Water Margin. The only confirmed cast member so far is Mr. Wu's favorite, Nie Yuan, who will be playing Lin Chong. The other roles will supposedly be selected via nationwide auditions, although Mr. Wu has said he wants a young Song Jiang and has his eye on Deng Chao for the part.
