Bill Paxton Kung Fu
November 2, 2011 by staff
It has been six years since his last film was released, and now it seems as if I get behind the camera again, as he is in talks with the legendary hospitality to direct a film adaptation of the 70′s TV series Kung Fu. The study hopes to start filming in China next summer, and have secured the talents of John McLaughlin (Black Swan) to write the script.
The original series and the role was reportedly originally conceived by Bruce Lee, but TV executives chose David Carradine Lee for the lead role, which meant it had to be changed.
Carradine played Kwai Chang Caine, an orphan of an American father and Chinese mother who was bred to be a Shaolin monk. Travel to U.S. for the family and peace, but soon discovers that it is accepted and often have to show his skills in martial arts.
Paxton is an interesting choice for the job, but there is potential for a lot of controversy, depending on how to cast the lead role. If they project a Caucasian, they will remain faithful to the television series that aired, but doing so could be another high profile case of a part was originally conceived as an actor you are a Caucasian Asia, following the The Last Airbender tastes and the forthcoming adaptation of Akira. Without doubt, be interesting to see how it pans out.
