Sammo Hung, the veteran Hong Kong action star you all know from the '90s Rush Hour-style CBS cop series Martial Law (alongside Arsenio Hall!), is in talks to star in Dark Horse Films' War Monkeys. From THR:

Sammo Hung is negotiations to star in "War Monkeys," a horror comedy shaping up to be the biggest feature yet from the independent arm of Dark Horse Films.

UTA-repped Kevin Munroe ("TMNT") is in negotiations to direct the film for Dark Horse Indie.

The horror comedy 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.

To give you an idea of what Sammo Hung and another guy fighting an army of armed Rhesus monkeys might be like, I've included a clip below the cut that should help you envision it. Just pretend everyone but Sammo Hung and Yuen Biao (Pete Wentz-hair guy) are monkeys.

I hope they don't CGI these monkeys. We need to see man fight monkey for real.
