Director Alex Zamm (Beverly Hills Chihuahua 2) has released some test footage from Alcon Entertainment and Warner Bros.' proposed live-action / CG hybrid adaptations of Hong Kong Phooey and Marvin the Martian.
Last August, it was revealed that Eddie Murphy (Doctor Dolittle) had signed on to lend his voice to Hanna-Barbera's kung-fu canine in Hong Kong Phooey, although with the test footage now making its way online, it would seem that the big screen adaptation may have fallen apart, much like Zamm's earlier Marvin the Martian project, which is of course based upon Chuck Jones' classic Looney Tunes character.
In the case of Hong Kong Phooey that's probably a good thing, although the Marvin the Martian footage - which takes the form of a short entitled 'Yule Be Sorry' - certainly looked a little more promising.
