    Veteran Kung Fu actor and director Sammo Hung will star in War Monkeys, a horror-comedy that will include monkeys, guns, and explosions, for Dark Horse Films.

    Kevin Munroe is set to direct the film, which will center on two janitors who end up trapped in an underground research facility during the Christmas holiday. The pair accidentally unleashes Rhesus monkeys who are caged and being trained by the military and must do battle with the beasts in order to survive. The monkeys will be a mix of real animals, animatronic puppets, and CGI. Hung will portray one of the hapless janitors.

    An early 2009 start date is being considered. Hung is a massive star in his native Hong Kong, known for acting, directing, and choreographing dozens of Kung Fu movies.
