Kung Fu movie on its way

kung fu caineAt some point Hollywood is going to run out of TV shows to remake into movies, but until that happens, you can look forward to a big screen adaptation of the popular 1970s series Kung Fu, which featured David Carradine as a monk living in the Wild West. Now, usually these adaptations aren't really worth seeing, but the Kung Fu movie has at least one good thing going for, which is that the screenplay was written by Ed Spielman (the creator of the original series) and another writer from the original series, Howard Friedlander. Apparently, the movie will explore the origins of the characters from the TV show.

True Bruce Lee fan's should avoid anything to do with any "Kung Fu" project or David Carradine.

"Trivia: According to Bruce Lee's wife, Linda Lee Cadwell, the concept of the Kung Fu series was conceived by Bruce, and met with the producers for countless hours to shape the show. But the producers did not offer the role to Bruce Lee since they did not feel that the American audience (at that time) would accept a Chinese actor as a lead, therefore looked for a Caucasian actor to fill the role."
