    Bruce Lee getting biopic treatment?
    'Birth of the Dragon' purports to tell the martial arts legend's 'origin story'
    By Corwin Neuse 24 hours ago
    [​IMG]This is a weird one. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the legendary Bruce Lee is getting the biopic treatment, sort of, in "Birth of the Dragon." The film will reportedly trace Lee's "origin story," recounting the true-to-life story how he and Chinese kung-fu master Wong Jack Man "dueled" in San Francisco in 1965. As the story goes, the two subsequently teamed up to take down the triad gangs that controlled Chinatown at that time. Which sounds more like "Big Trouble in Little China" than an honest biopic to us, but, hey, who's counting?
    The script for "Dragon" will be written by Christopher Wilkinson and Stephen Rivele, who can be said to specialize in biopic fare. They previously collaborated on the Oscar-grubbing flicks "Nixon" and "Ali," and also wrote "Mercury," the upcoming Freddie Mercury biopic starring Sacha Baron Cohen. Which certainly gives "Birth of a Dragon" a not-inconsiderable air of creative legitimacy. Still, that two sentence synopsis leaves something to be desired...
    What do you think, Hitlisters? Bruce Lee certainly seems deserving of silver-screen immortalization, but is this the right vehicle to achieve all that? Does anybody else even remember "Big Trouble in Little China?" Is today a slow news day? As always, let us know in the comments, or drop us a line on MSN Movies Facebook and MSN Movies Twitter.

    Do doubt...all one has to do is listen to him and they will see he was deep. You know he wuz suppose to be Kung Fu, but they didn't want as Asian to get the spot light. He faced the same thing in the Green Hornet, they didn't like the way the public was attracted to him instead of Rex Reed.

    Peace!

    I know I'm preaching to the choir, but look how real it would have been to have him play his creation? Look how much better the action would have been. Even they wrote doubt into the scrips when they would say "you don't look like a chinaman".

    Pace!

    Plus, the racism shown in the scripts would have been waaaay too much for white folx to handle
