Get ready for a Hong Kong Phooey who yells for no good reason. Eddie Murphy is in talks to voice the famous dog janitor/ninja in the upcoming film. The live action/animated adaptation of the Hanna Barbera cartoon will be directed by Alex Zamm who is best known for Dr. Doolittle: Million Dollar Mutts and Tooth Fairy 2 which are apparently films that exist in some form.
Producers Broderick Johnson and Andrew Kosove say, “We could not be happier that Eddie Murphy will star as Phooey. There is no overstating his contributions to cinema, and to such enduring stars of family entertainments such as Shrek and Dr. Doolittle. We look forward to watching him re-imagine yet another classic character.”
