An all-female crew has made a movie about an all-male crew that makes the most out of the title of its own title, by focusing on female characters in a way that is so different from the rest of the genre.
The karate-themed film, called The Kombat Kids, is scheduled to be released by Paramount on July 30.
The story is based on a memoir by filmmaker Lisa L. Kuehnle, who is also the author of the popular book, The Koo Kids: A Family of Puppets.
Kuehnles memoir, which was published in 2014, focuses on her two daughters, who are both dogs.
In the film, the sisters are sent to live with their father’s family.
“My first instinct was that I wanted to be a little bit more like the Koo kids,” Kuehns daughters, Jodie and Grace, told the Times of Indias New York City news outlet.
“But then I also knew that the way they dress, how they speak, and their personalities were very different from their brothers.
It wasn’t that they were going to be the karate girls, it was more like they were more of the ‘dog’ kind of family.
So I tried to keep it family-oriented.”
The sisters, who were born in California, say they have never felt so much like family.
“They are like my children,” Kiehnles said of her daughters.
“I really love them dearly.”
The film also stars Jessica Husemann, who plays the eldest daughter.
“The Koo Kid” is set to premiere on July 29 in New York and on July 31 in Los Angeles.
