Hughes Brothers Practicing "Kung Fu"

November 3, 2006, 8:47 am GMT

Twin brothers Allen and Albert Hughes are on duty to direct big screen adaptation of the 1970s classic TV series "Kung Fu."


Finally returning to film directing after half a decade, twin brothers Allen and Albert Hughes have delightfully been confirmed to be on board in helming action flick "Kung Fu", one of the twenty-five film projects marking the five-year deal between Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures.

An adaptation of the 1970s classic TV series starring David Carradine, the picture is expected to enter production next year with Thomas Tull, Scott Mednick, plus Jon Jashni producing and the series creator Ed Spielman executive producing. Meanwhile, Cory Goodman is set to re-write the script originally penned together by Spielman and Howard Friedlander.

Said to begin making films at age twelve, the Hughes brothers last directed "From Hell" starring Johnny Depp and Heather Graham for 20th Century Fox in 2001. Other helming credits of theirs include "Menace II Society", "Dead Presidents", and "American Pimp."
