The film stars Wu Kang-ren plays a no-nonsense prosecutor in pursuit of a media-savvy serial killer
Copycat Killer, the upcoming Chinese crime thriller, will premiere on Netflix on March 31. Based on a crime mystery novel by Japanese writer Miyuki Miyabe, set in 90s Taipei, the story tells about the first-ever serial murder case in Taiwan.
According to the streaming platform, "the media-savvy serial killer turns the case into a national spectacle, fueling gossip and notoriety. A no-nonsense prosecutor, played by award-winning actor Wu Kang-ren, vows to solve the case only to realize that things are not what they seem. Meanwhile, the killer repeatedly makes a mockery of law and justice as he seeks to destroy peace and order in society."
Actor Wu Kang-ren plays a no-nonsense prosecutor in pursuit of a media-savvy serial killer. This gripping series is helmed by award-winning producers Hank Tseng and Phil Tang. “Copycat Killer depicts a story of how desires, when out of control, can cause evil to go viral in a city,” said Tseng. “We hope that the confluence and fluidity of good and evil in the series will be able to provide healing to our viewers in this world of madness, where a lot more can be done to help and support each other.”
