Studios love Eddie Murphy‘s voice. The actor has landed yet another voiceover role in a new animated film version of 70s’ cartoon character Hong Kong Phooey from the Hannah-Barbera series.

The film revolves around a dog, Penry, to be played by Murphy, who is granted mystic powers, including the ability to walk, talk and do kung fu. Donning a costume to become Hong Kong Phooey, he sets out to combat criminals.

Murphy can be seen next in ‘Tower Heist,’ starring opposite Gabourey Sidibe, and “A Thousand Words.’
