Oscar winner Michelle Yeoh headlines assassin drama The Brothers Sun. Here’s the trailer for the upcoming series from Netflix.
While Michelle Yeah only recently received an Oscar for her marvellous performance in Everything, Everywhere, All At Once, she has been at the top tier of the action film industry for decades, starring alongside the likes of Jackie Chan in Supercop, Cynthia Rothrick in Yes Madam, Jet Li in Tai Chi Master and Donnie Yen in Wing Chun.
And that was all before Tomorrow Never Dies and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, the films that primarily put her on the map for western audiences.
Michelle Yeoh now headlines Netflix series The Brothers Sun, and the synopsis for the show reads as follows:
When the head of a powerful Taiwanese triad is shot by a mysterious assassin, his eldest son, legendary killer Charles “Chairleg” Sun (Justin Chien) heads to Los Angeles to protect his mother, Eileen (Michelle Yeoh), and his naive younger brother, Bruce (Sam Song Li) — who’s been completely sheltered from the truth of his family until now. But as Taipei’s deadliest societies and a new rising faction go head-to-head for dominance — Charles, Bruce and their mother must heal the wounds caused by their separation and figure out what brotherhood and family truly mean before one of their countless enemies kills them all.
Highdee Kuan, Joon Lee, Alice Hewkin, Jon Xue Zhang, Jenny Yang, Madison Hu, and Rodney To complete the cast for the show.
The series was created by Brad Falchuk and Byron Wu, with Falchuk acting as showrunner. Scripts are written by Andrew Law, SJ Son, Justin Calen-Chenn, Ally Seibert, Amy Wang, Jason Ning. Directors include Kevin Tancharoen and Viet Nguyen.
The Brothers Sun will stream on Netflix from the 4th January. Mayhem will clearly ensue.
