Andrew Dominik to script remake of Shaolin Temple; Justin Lin to direct

Aug. 22, 2014by: Alex Maidy

Justin Lin's directorial future continues to pile up with new projects, but it looks like the follow-up to THE BOURNE LEGACY will still be his next film. And now what comes after that 2015 film has been decided as Lin will helm the 3D remake of Jet Li's film debut, SHAOLIN TEMPLE.

Deadline reports that Lin will direct the film from a screenplay by Andrew Dominik. Dominik is best known for scripting and directing the Eric Bana crime flick CHOPPER and the Brad Pitt sleeper KILLING ME SOFTLY. The film will reportedly have a budget over $100 million and is being looked at as a major studio release.

When the Tang emperor is betrayed by one of his generals, the son of one of his slave workers escapes to the temple, trains in kung fu, and sets out to kill the traitor.

There does not appear to be a domestic studio involved with SHAOLIN TEMPLE yet, but with such a high budget this is bound to be a wide release, especially if they can get some big names attached. Maybe Jet Li would be interested in a role?
