Brett Ratner has been named as one of the producers of Hong Kong Phooey, a live action/animated adaptation of one of the less memorable Hanna-Barbera shows, which is saying something. The original Hong Kong Phooey ran for just 16 shows. For comparison, that’s 81 episodes less than Caroline in the City.
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. [Variety]
This sounds like a scrambled metaphor for Brett Ratner’s career: a guy who should be a janitor with the mystical power to make movies about police stations and kung fu. Possible title: Hong Kong Jewy.
