From Ten Rings to Seven Wonders.
Marvel star Simu Liu (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) is attached to headline a series adaptation of Ben Mezrich’s novel Seven Wonders, which is development at Prime Video, our sister site Deadline reports.
The project centers around a “brilliant botanist-adventurer, Dr. Nate Grady (Liu), who teams up with the slippery international fixer, Sloane Seydoux, on a breathless race to solve an ancient mystery tied to the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World.”
In addition to starring in the action-adventure series, Liu will executive-produce alongside writer Adam Cozad (The Legend Of Tarzan) and director Justin Lin (S.W.A.T.). On the TV side, Liu is known for playing Jung on the Canadian comedy Kim’s Convenience.
