I just caught wind that Bruce Lee’s 1973 classic martial arts film “Enter the Dragon” is to be remade.
Its going to be written and directed by Kurt Sutter who is the producer of “The Shield” on the FX channel; so it should be pretty gritty. The new title will be “Awaken the Dragon.”
Hopefully they don’t screw this one up as its going to be a hard movie to beat. It will no doubt involve a ton of wire work and unbelievable digital effects.
The Associated Press is said to have received an email today from Warner Bros. publicist that the remake will tell the tale of an FBI agent who is assigned to investigate a Shaolin monk and underground Kung Fu fight clubs. No word yet on who will be cast in the lead roles.
If you’ve never seen the original Bruce Lee classic, I highly recommend renting it. It’s one of the all time best martial arts movies, ever. Period.
BONUS: Rumor has it that the dojo scene in Enter The Dragon takes place at a Kenpo Karate Studio.
