Nearly four decades after his passing, martial arts legend Bruce Lee is getting a three-part biopic made about him through China’s J.A. Media and the co-operation of Lee’s family reports the trades.
“Bruce Lee” will star Tony Leung Ka-fai as Lee’s father, though additional cast and a director have yet to be selected (though Zhang Yimou has often expressed interest in such a picture). Li Chen will produce.
The $7.3 million first film will hit cinemas on November 27th 2010, the 70th anniversary of Lee’s birth. Filming is slated to kick off in October.
