Kapur Helms Bruce Lee Biopic “Little Dragon”

“Elizabeth” director Shekhar Kapur is to helm the authorised Bruce Lee biopic “Little Dragon” for Bruce Lee Entertainment and Convergence Entertainment.

The story is described as a contemporary dramatisation of the 1950s Hong Kong social and political forces that shaped Bruce Lee into both the most famous martial arts star of all time and a significant modern day philosopher.

Themes include family disappointment, young love, true friendship, betrayal, racism, deep poverty and an inner fire that threatened to unravel his destiny

Kapur and Shannon Lee co-wrote the script and will produce. Pre-production is now under way ahead of a July start of shooting in Malaysia.
