“Birth of the Dragon” Pre-Premiere Poster

Though the film hasn’t been screened for buyers yet, the first one-sheet is out for “The Bourne Ultimatum” writer and “The Adjustment Bureau” director George Nolfi’s new film “Birth of the Dragon”.

The story begins with a famous private brawl between Bruce Lee (Philip Ng) and Shaolin monk Wong Jack Man (Yu Xia) which forged a new fighting style for Lee and led to his ascension to both global star and the symbol of kung fu until his death in 1973 at the age of 32.

The film is set to have its premiere Tuesday at the Toronto Film Festival. Stephen J. Rivele and Christopher Wilkinson penned the script while Billy Magnussen, Terry Chen and Ron Yuan also star.
