Get Ready for Hong Kong Phooey
You just can’t keep a cartoon dog down, as Brett Ratner (the horrible director of RUSH HOUR) has signed a deal with Alcon Entertainment to develop a live action version of the classic Hanna Barbera cartoon series HONG KONG PHOOEY. If you’ve for some reason never seen the cartoon, it focuses on a clumsy, kung-fu fighting, detective dog that is a janitor by day. The film will focus on the origin of Phooey and a villain that wants his powers. Alcon hopes to turn it into a family franchise.
