Cult ’70s TV Show to Get Big-Screen Treatment, With HBO Series Star in Talks to Direct

Nov 1, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Another high-profile big-screen adaptation of a vintage TV show is in the works, Deadline.com reports. This time the show is the quirky 1970s series “Kung Fu,” which starred David Carradine. The story reports that Bill Paxton, the star of HBO’s “Big Love,” is in talks to direct.

Paxton, whose character was killed in the finale of "Big Love," has directed feature films before, including "Frailty" and "The Greatest Game Ever Played."

Legendary Entertainment is hoping to film "Kung Fu," including Chinese locations, next summer. John McLaughlin is penning the script, the story notes.
