Director Justin Lin has signed on to give Chinese cult classic THE Shaolin TEMPLE another remake - this time in 3D.

The 1982 martial arts movie, which marked Jet Li's acting debut, was updated for action fans in 2011 under the title Shaolin, starring Jackie Chan and Andy Lau, and now Fast and Furious filmmaker Lin is set to give the kung fu epic a new spin, using modern technology to transform it into a 3D epic.

A screenwriter and expected release date for the Chinese-language project have yet to be announced.

Lin will spend part of 2014 shooting the next installment of the Bourne franchise, which is due to hit movie theatres in 2015.
