The plot will be updated but will follow a similar story as the original, centering on a martial arts student named Leroy Green and his quest through the streets of New York to achieve the highest level of

Dallas Jackson, writer of the upcoming film Uncle P from Beacon Pictures, is forming a production company with the intent of breaking into television. With $1 million in private financing, Los Angeles-based Street Kidz Studios is developing the pilot Lil' Homies, a contemporary update of Lil' Rascals, with a young multiethnic cast that will be produced with kid-targeted cable channels in mind.

Beacon Pictures is banking on the appeal of father-son rappers Master P and Lil' Romeo to pack a punch at the boxoffice as the Walt Disney Co.-based production company has picked up a pair of projects involving the duo. The projects include Uncle P, an urban family comedy that Master P had bankrolled himself and recently wrapped production on with Bernard Gourly directing, and the comedy Shorty, which Beacon is in early negotiations to pick up out of turnaround at Universal Pictures.
