Stephen Chow Remakes Bruce Lee Classic

“Shaolin Soccer” and “Kung Fu Hustle” director Stephen Chow is apparently set to helm “Tai Chi”, a remake of Bruce Lee classic “Way of the Dragon” says Channel News Asia (via Twitchfilm.

The original 1972 ‘Dragon’ had martial arts legend Lee traveling to Rome where he defends local restaurant owners from mafioso types. The film was one of the few outright comedic-toned efforts that Lee did in his lifetime.

Jack Black and Anne Hathaway star in the English-language project which begins shooting in June.
