Baz Luhrmann may direct an adaptation of classic 70s TV series Kung Fu – When Baz Luhrmann announced he would be making a 3D version of THE GREAT GATSBY, I didn't bat an eye. After seeing the director take ROMEO + JULIET and translate it to a world of gang-bangers and gunplay, I was ready for anything.
