First ‘War Monkeys’ Casting!

The other day we broke the news that Kevin Munroe (TMNT, Dead of Night) would be directing War Monkeys, a horror comedy adaptation from Dark Horse Films. Tonight the Hollywood Reporter revealed that Sammo Hung is negotiations to star in the film that follows two janitors who, during a Christmas holiday, get trapped in an underground research facility after accidentally unleashing military-trained Rhesus monkeys. Hung is one of the janitors who battles the rabid simians. Cleve Nettles wrote the script, based on a story by DHI producer Chris Patton. Robert Sanchez (of IESB.net) is also producing. Filming could commence in early 2009.
