Baz Luhrmann in Talks to Make Kung Fu Movie

The Hollywood Reporter reports Baz Luhrmann is in talks to direct Kung Fu, an adaptation of the 1970s martial arts Western TV show. Running from 1972 to 1975, it starred David Carradine as a half-American, half-Chinese orphan who is trained at a Shaolin monastery to become a martial arts master and eventually moves to America to fight for justice and the little guy. No word on whether in Baz's version, the protagonist will train by trying to kick slow-motion falling shirts.
