Dragon Remade By Sutter

Warner Independent Pictures has set “The Shield” exec producer Kurt Sutter to write and make his feature directing debut on “Awaken the Dragon” reports Variety.

This noir-style remake of 1973 Bruce Lee martial arts classic “Enter the Dragon” is a contemporized drama about a lone FBI agent who pursues a rogue Shaolin monk into the raw and bloody world of underground martial arts fight clubs.

The original had Lee as a martial artist who’s drafted by law enforcement to participate in a martial arts tournament and infiltrate a drug smuggling operation run from the host’s heavily guarded island.

Sutter will look to discover a fight star in the role of the monk and cast an established American actor to play the FBI agent.
