I just read on a film site according to today's Variety, director Brett Ratner (Rush Hour, Red Dragon) is bringing Hanna-Barbera's Hong Kong Phooey to the big screen. The trade scoops that Ratner's Rat Entertainment will produce the live-action/computer animated comedy along with Warner Bros.-based Alcon Entertainment. The filmmakers hope to turn the project into a franchise. I always liked Hong Kong Phooey but what is next. Also Sony are planning to make a Return to Castle Wolfenstein Film.
