Fans of fantasy epics such as The Lord of Rings franchise can now look forward to Chinese film Legend of the Naga Pearls, inspired by the 2011 best-selling novel Novoland: City of Desperate Love.

In the movie, a thief, a criminal-hunter, and a prince embark on a journey to fight a powerful villain as they seek an ancient treasure.

Taiwan's Darren Wang and actress Zhang Tian'ai, as well as Sheng Guansen, star as the treasure-hunting trio, while Hong Kong veteran actor Yam Tat-wah plays the villain.

The film's director is Yang Lei, a die-hard fan of fantasy tales.

The feature-length movie will hit Chinese mainland theaters on Aug 4.
