Official Bruce Lee Biopic In The Works With Involvement From Family | Film News
Bruce Lee Entertainment has confirmed that an official biopic of the world famous martial arts genius and action star Bruce Lee is in the works with involvement from his direct family. His daughter Shannon Lee will be producing alongside Lawrence Grey and Janet Yang, with the flick aimed to be considered as the definitive biopic for the famous movie star. Here’s what Shannon had to say on the project;
“There have been projects out there involving my father, but they’ve lacked a complete understanding of his philosophies and artistry. They haven’t captured the essence of his beliefs in martial arts or storytelling. The only way to get audiences to understand the depth and uniqueness of my father is to generate our own material and find amazing, like-minded partners to work with…Many don’t know that Bruce Lee was also a prolific writer and a creator of his own unique art and philosophy. That’s what we want to show – not just his kick-ass physicality, but the depth of his character and beliefs”.
Having his daughter involved and reading her summary of the project, this is really exciting news for die hard Bruce Lee fans who haven’t been satisfied with previous creative work based on him and his life. It will be interesting to see who will play the iconic star but it will certainly be a difficult one to cast, as finding somebody who could embody such a well loved phenomenon is going to be tricky!
