EDDIE Murphy is to lend his voice to the animated character of Hong Kong Phooey for a new film based on the Hanna-Barbera animated TV series from the ‘70s.

Alex Zamm (Tooth Fairy 2) is directing the big screen version of Hong Kong Phooey, which will combine live action with animation.

Murphy will next be seen in Universal’s Tower Heist alongside Ben Stiller for director Brett Ratner, and Dreamworks’ A Thousand Words.
