Another 70s show remake...
The planned big-screen remake of Kung Fu is finally gaining traction. The Tracking Board reports that Legendary Pictures is pushing ahead with the project as part of their new deal with Universal Pictures. The search for a director is underway..
The original series was set in the Old West in the 19th Century and starred David Carradine as a monk traveling across America looking for his father facing all sorts of foes using his martial arts. There was an updated version, Kung Fu: The Legend Continues, which starred Chris Potter as a police detective who was son of the original monk's grandson (also played by Carradine).
The plan is to bring the film's setting into the modern day.
