Directors Allen and Albert Hughes will both co-direct Kung Fu, the big screen adaptation of the 1970s classic TV series for Warner Bros.-based Legendary Pictures, according to Variety.

Cory Goodman (Priest) will rewrite a script by Howard Friedlander -- a writer on the original series -- and Spielman. The Zen spirit of that David Carradine television series will be preserved in the film, which is on course for a production start next year.

Legendary and WB will co-finance. Goal is a 2008 release.
