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 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?"
