The 70 Kung fu series will resurrect with a female version

The mythical martial arts series Kung fu, aired during the 70s, will return to television with a reboot starring a young Chinese-American. The new fiction, a creation of Christina M. Kim (Lost) and Martin Gero (Blindspot), will feature the producer specializing in DC superhero series Greg Berlanti.

According to Deadline, The CW has given the green light to this reboot, a project that has already tried to carry out FOX without success. On this occasion, the series will feature a young woman who, after taking a trip to a remote monastery in China, where she will be trained in martial arts and Buddhist values, will use her new skills to fight crime in the United States and try to find to the murderer of his mentor Shaolin.

In the original series, aired between 1972 and 1975, actor David Carradine played Kwai Chang Caine, a Shaolin monk who traveled the United States making friends and enemies. The North American authorities looked for the protagonist by murder with a picturesque warning: “their hands and their feet must be considered like mortal weapons”.

The adventures of Shaolin monk were brought to the big screen in the 1986 film Kung Fu: The film, also starring Carradine. The actor returned to play Kwai Chang Caine in the 80’s spinoff series Kung fu: The next generation.
