Studio plans remake of Bruce Lee classic 'Enter the Dragon'
HONG KONG -- Bruce Lee's classic 1973 film, "Enter the Dragon," will be remade by Warner Bros.
The remake, to be titled "Awaken the Dragon," will be written and directed by Kurt Sutter, producer of "The Shield" TV series. It will be released by Warner Independent Pictures.
In an e-mail Thursday to The Associated Press, Warner Bros. publicist Laura Kim said the movie will tell the story of an FBI agent who investigates a Shaolin monk and underground kung fu fight clubs.
Lee played a kung fu fighter who infiltrates an island occupied by a rogue martial arts artist in "Enter the Dragon."
He died in 1973, at 32, from swelling of the brain.
Lee was known for movies in which he portrayed characters that defend the Chinese and the working class from oppressors.
He was born in San Francisco but grew up in Hong Kong, where he made his name as an actor.
