Lucy Liu will take the seat as the executive producer and also the star of "Charlie Chan." Focusing its story on the granddaughter of the fictional Chinese-American detective, the project will be written in an updated version by Dan McDermott. "It's a reinvention of the franchise that credibly passes on the baton to Lucy Liu as the lead character and lead of the franchise," McDermott commented.
