From The Hollywood Reporter:
Netflix’s high-profile plan to have Sport of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss adapt the bestselling Chinese language sci-fi books The Three-Physique Drawback has been hit by a scandalous attempted-murder plot in Shanghai.
Yoozoo Group’s chairman, Lin Qi, who’s credited as a producer on the Netflix collection alongside Benioff, Weiss and others, was hospitalized after having been poisoned on Dec. 16, based on an announcement launched Wednesday by the Shanghai police. Native authorities have apprehended a suspect, surnamed Xu, whom they imagine to be chargeable for the poisoning.
Earlier this summer season, the Chinese language authorities did launch its official guidelines for Hollywood-competitive movie-making. Govt homicide conspiracies have been surreptitiously absent from that checklist.
As of press time, nobody has heard from any of the American GOP Senators who had previously called for the cancellation of Netflix’s The Three Body Problem, both.
