sammo hung to star in war monkeys

Where do people come up with ideas like this? According to the Hollywood Reporter, Hong Kong action star Sammo Hung will star in the horror comedy War Monkeys: Sammo Hung Set to Star in War Monkeys. And literally, he will be fighting monkeys.

The movie follow two janitors who, during a Christmas holiday, get trapped in an underground research facility after accidentally unleashing military-trained Rhesus monkeys. Seriously? This is either going to be really awesome and phenomenally stupid.

Sammo will play one of the janitors battling the mad monkeys. The monkeys will be a combination of real monkeys, animatronic puppets and CGI. I do hope we will get to see Sammo kung fu kicking the crap out of a chimpanzee or something. The project is expected to start filming in early 2009.
