Bill Paxton May Direct "Kung Fu" Movie

Posted: November 1st, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Bill Paxton May Direct "Kung Fu" MovieSubmit Comment
It's been five years since Allen and Albert Hughes (The Book of Eli) signed on to direct a big screen adaptation of the classic 1972 "Kung Fu" TV series that starred David Carradine. The brothers were then replaced by Max Makowski (One Last Dance).

And now comes word that Makowski is out as well and Bill Paxton is in talks to direct the film. Paxton is mostly known for his acting, but he has also directed two solid films, "Frailty" and "The Greatest Game Ever Played."

If the deal is signed, Paxton will helm from a script by John McLaughlin (Black Swan). The plan is to begin shooting in China next summer.

The original series followed the adventures of a Shaolin monk as he wanders the American West. The monk wants peace but usually winds up using his spectacular martial arts skills to battle the bad guys, in between flashbacks of his early life in the monastery.

Well, I love Frailty, so this might not turn out so bad.

Who's gonna play the monk? Some white dude I bet.
They should do it the way Bruce Lee originally envisioned it, as an apology for stealing his idea.

Jet Li or Donny Yen would be good monks.

"Who's gonna play the monk? Some white dude I bet."
YEs it has been done already in a movie called American Shaolin.It is a very funny movie but the action is top notch and the white guy can really move.The Choreograpy was by Corey Yuen whose credits include Transporter,No Retreat No Surrender 2,KIss of the Dragon,Fong Sai Yuk 1&2 with JEt Li

"Jet Li or Donny Yen would be good monks"
Umm no there not gonna play monks and Jet Li already played one in Forbidden Kingdom,and Donnie Yen had his share of Hollywood and they gave him the sh*ttiest roles.Examples: Blade 2,Highlander 3,Shanghai knights with Owen Wilson.WTF.

Hope you know that there are like a million other martial artists in Asia and theyre really good.Not just Tony Jaa,Donnie,Jet,Jackie

theres Vincent Zhao,Ti Lung,David Chiang,Wu Jing,Ken Lo(jackie's Bodyguard),Andy Lau,Tan Tao Liang,Johny Tri Nguyen,Robin Shou,Johny Wang,Gordon Liu

And the RZA from the Wutang Clan is already directing a Kung Fu movie with Russel Crowe and the cast is pretty damn good
