Spike TV will honor the memory of late "Kung Fu" star David Carradine this weekend with a movie marathon featuring three of his features.

Carradine died last week in Thailand at the age of 72. Local police are investigating the circumstances of his passing.

Spike’s marathon will begin Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m. with back-to-back airings of "Kill Bill, Vol. 1" and "Kill Bill, Vol. 2." Spike will repeat the "Bill" movies in primetime, then wrap up the marathon at 1 a.m. with an encore showing of "Kung Fu Killer," a Spike original film that first aired last August.

"This action-packed marathon is our way of paying homage to one of the most unforgettable martial arts action heroes in film and television history," said John Griffin, vice president, programming, Spike TV.
