KUNG FU TV SERIES HOPS TO BIG SCREEN.

Warner Bros.-based Legendary Pictures will bring...KUNG FU, to the big screen, VARIETY reports. Spielman and Howard
Friedlander, a writer on the original series, have penned the screenplay.

No details about the plot have been announced, however Legendary president
of distribution and marketing Scott Mednick said the film would
realistically delve into the events on which the TV show was based and the
origins of the main characters. David Carradine became a ‘70s icon in the
lead role of Kwai Chang Caine, a Shaolin monk who leaves China for the
American Wild West, where he helps the powerless.

Original series debuted as a movie of the week in 1972, spinning off into a
weekly series on ABC until 1975. Two additional telepics were made as well
as another series in 1993.
