Warner Bros has announced it will remake 1973 Kung Fu classic Enter the Dragon, AP chillingly reports.

The rehash - cunningly entitled Awaken the Dragon - will be directed by The Shield's Kurt Sutter and will feature "an FBI agent who investigates a Shaolin monk and underground kung fu fight clubs", according to Warner Bros publicist Laura Kim.

Casting details are not forthcoming, but we'd like to suggest remake specialist Sly Stallone as the spook, Jude Law to play a suitably metrosexual and 21st-century monk, and cameo roles for Harold Shand and Nicolas Cage as proprietors of a sinister floating Kung Fu cruise liner which is rather excitingly upended by a large wave.

Yup, we reckon that just about covers it. ®
