Famuyima In Talks To Direct “Son of Shaolin”

“Dope” and at one time “The Flash” director Rick Famuyiwa has begun talks to direct “Son of Shaolin,” a film adaptation of the Image Comics graphic novel by Jay Longino.

The kung-fu epic, set in the back alleys and subway tunnels of Harlem, follows an aspiring street artist who learns he is the last living descendant of a secret sect of ancient Shaolin elders.

Confused and unsure of where to turn, he finds a father figure in the mysterious Master Fong who trains him in preparation to face off the relentless killer Red Fist who has already murdered the rest of the young man’s bloodline.

Dwayne Johnson, Dany and Hiram Garcia will produce the film adaptation which hits shelves on September 20th.
