For years, fans have asked for a film on the life of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, and our wishes have finally been granted. According to Variety, Shekhar Kapur is on hand to direct Little Dragon; a film based on the life of Lee. The story is said to take place in the 1950’s in Hong Kong and will stick to the themes of detailing family disappointment, young love, true friendship, betrayal, racism, deep poverty and an inner fire that threatened to unravel his destiny.
Lee’s daughter, Shannon Lee, will be handling production through Bruce Lee Entertainment. She made the announcement via Instagram, also nothing that she’d be sharing more news following pre-production.
“I always thought that a film about how my father’s life was shaped in his early years in Hong Kong would be a worthwhile story to share so we could better understand him as a human being and a warrior,” said Lee. “I’m really excited that Shekhar will breathe life into the first film from Bruce Lee Entertainment.”
