Hong Kong Phooey kicks it as a live action flick


While some of you may not be fans of the live action Scooby-Doo movies, I wonder if you feel the same way about the announcement there’s a Hong Kong Phooey live action flick in the works?

Project’s an adaptation of the 1970s Hanna-Barbera animated TV series, about a police station janitor who becomes a dog with mystical powers, including the ability to do kung fu.

The movie is being produced by Brett Ratner, Jay Stern, Broderick Johnson, and Andrew Kosove.

I wonder how this movie will play out.  Will it be live action with a CGI dog?  I’d be up for that, especially if they didn’t try to make it look too much like that weird Cats vs. Dogs movie.  Perhaps the Phooey will be replace by a live person, but that might make it too much like Iron Fist.  The only thing I do know is whoever plays the title role will never live up to Scatman Crothers.
