A revenge mission becomes a fight to save the world from an ancient threat when super powered-assassin Kai tracks a killer to Bangkok.
On February 26, 2021, Netflix ordered a 90-minute film project titled Fistful of Vengeance, acting as a follow-up to the first season of Wu Assassins. Living Films was involved in the production of the film, after serving in the series. Roel Reiné directed the film, whilst Cameron Litvack, Jessica Chou and Yalun Tu helmed the screenplay. After the film announcement, it was confirmed that Iko Uwais, Lewis Tan, Lawrence Kao and JuJu Chan will reprise their respective roles from the series in Wu Assassins: Fistful of Vengeance. Additionally, it was confirmed that Pearl Thusi, Francesca Corney, Jason Tobin, Rhatha Phongam and Simon Kuke were cast in the film. Filming took place in Thailand in early 2021.
Speaking on the film’s connection to the original series, Kao states:
[It] is sort of like a standalone movie. You don’t necessarily have to watch the first season to understand what’s going on, I personally think it’s something that’ll be more easily digestible, but also more action-packed and a roller coaster from beginning to end
