Baz Luhrmann is in talks to direct a big screen reboot of classic David Carradine Western series Kung Fu, according to THR.
It seems like a left-field choice, since Lurhmann is known more for dance choreography and staging elaborate party scenes, but that experience might just lends itself well to choreographing martial arts fight sequences.
The Caucasian Carradine cringingly played a Chinese monk who comes to America in search of his half-brother, but it was the 1970s, I guess. The new film is said to reverse things and send the lead character to China in search of his dad.
If Luhrmann's deal closes, he will rewrite the script first.
