Dwayne Johnson's Son of Shaolin To Be Directed By Rick Famuyiwa.

According to THR, Rick Famuyiwa (Dope) is allegedly in talk with Sony Pictures to direct the live-action film adaptation of Image Comics' Son of Shaolin graphic novel.

Written by Jay Longino with art by Caanan White, Son of Shaolin will be produced at Dwayne Johnson and Dany and Hiram Garcia's Seven Bucks Entertainment.




Son of Shaolin offers a kung-fu epic set in the back alleys and subway tunnels of Harlem, New York. Kyrie, an aspiring street artist who is struggling to make ends meet, learns that 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. Fong trains Kyrie in martial arts in anticipation of an attack from Red Fist, a relentless killer who has already murdered the rest of Kyrie’s bloodline.

You’ll be able to read Son of Shaolin yourself when the original graphic novel hits shelves September 20.
