More than one version of Bruce Lee‘s life story has hit the screen, with the most notable dramatized biopic being Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story, starring Jason Scott Lee. (There is no relation between the men, despite the common name.)
Now QED International and banner Groundswell Productions plan to re-tell the “origin story” (gag) of Lee through a new film, Birth of the Dragon. The movie will be written by Christopher Wilkinson and Stephen Rivele (Nixon, Ali). The term “origin story” is used in part, it seems, to indicate that this is more like an action film inspired by Lee’s life than an account of his history that is meant to be close to reality. This will be no straight biopic, but something more like Ip Man with a lot more action.
