It was confirmed last week that Legendary Pictures working with their new partner Universal Pictures, are going to adapt the popular '70s television series "Kung Vu" for the big-screen. Now it's being reported that none other than the king of the on-screen spectacle, Baz Luhrmann, may direct the picture.
David Carradine starred in the original series, which focused on him portraying a monk traveling across the country looking for his father. It took place in the Old West during the 19th Century. He was forced to utilize his martial arts skills in order to battle off people standing in way of his quest.
Luhrmann has a very distinctive and elaborate style as seen in such films as "The Great Gatsby", "Romeo + Juliet" and "Moulin Rouge!". In addition to his colorful, rich sets and costumes, he is known for blending older historic times with new age music. One can only imagine what he'll do with a property like "Kung Fu".
Do you think Luhrmann is the right fit for this project? Let us know in the comments section below!
