LetsOTT Editorial Team -
Netflix has acquired the rights to Chinese fantasy drama Super Me for distribution outside China, former Yugoslavia and India. A Zhang Chong directorial, the film has had its debut in Sitges in 2019 and went on to further festival play. Only last Friday, the film also premiered in China and would be officially released in the Chinese region on April 9. The cast includes Darren Wang, Song Jia and Cao Bingkun along with Wu Gang, as reported by Deadline.
No release date by Netflix has been set as of yet. The story revolves around Sang Yu (Darren Wang), who has always dreamt of becoming a successful screenwriter. He writes non-stop, as he stresses out to finish a script he’s been paid by his friend, San Ge (Cao Bingkun), to complete. Plagued by the nightmares of a demon who wants to kill him, Sang Yu tries to stay awake and becomes an insomniac. One day, he discovers that he possesses a superpower — making his dreams a reality, which he uses to his own advantage. As his lifestyle improves, he encounters Qiang Ge (Wu Gang), a ruthless gangster, who uses Sang Yu as a tool to achieve his fortune. Along the way, Sang Yu is able to pursue Hua Er (Song Jia), his crush since childhood, and the love of his life.
