New Bruce Lee Movie In The Works

Ultimate movie news site The Hollywood Reporter has released the latest details concerning the brand new Bruce Lee biopic in the works. According to the site Birth of the Dragon will be penned by Christopher Wilkinson and Stephen Rivele of Ali and Nixon fame. So as far as biopics go, the duo's credentials would appear to be in order. The movie is said to center around the real-life fight between the martial arts legend and kung fu Master Wong Jack Man. Bruce Lee history buffs will recall that the legendary battle took place in San Francisco, 1965. So far so good, but then more details are revealed...

According to the latest reports:

"The writers are using this true event as a jumping-off point for a wider-canvas action movie in which Wong and Lee team up to battle a band of Chinatown gangsters."

...So it's at this point that my hope for the movie takes a gut-wrenching dive. Maybe it's asking too much, but I was looking forward to an accurate biopic centered around one of the most unbelievable rivalries of the 20th century. Instead, I get the premise for some alternate history, buddy action movie that would barely hold juice as a USA show. Man. I'm used to having my hopes raised and destroyed but rarely does it happen in the same article.
