A new Bruce Lee movie is ... no, there are two ... I mean THREE Bruce Lee movies scheduled to come out for his 70th birthday on November 2010. (70-years-old?)
I’m looking forward to one, but not the other two…
Let’s start from worse to best:
The one I’m NOT looking forward to watching:
It’s called 双节棍 (Mandarin: Shuang Jie Gun) which translates to "Nunchucks".
It looks and sounds horrible. When I saw the production photos a little vomit rose into my mouth.
Now, if it’s meant to be a comedy, maybe I’d watc… nah, it looks really terrible.
The second one I’m not looking forward to, but might watch:
Its titled The Silent Flute. It’s based on a treatment Bruce Lee wrote before he passed away and the producers want it to elevate Bruce Lee’s “philosophical and artistic techniques” — whatever that means?
Some people are already complaining that it's a cleverly disguised remake of Circle of Iron (1978) starring *cough* David Carradine.
From what I can gather it doesn’t seem to exploit Bruce (?), so that’s a plus.
The new movie I am looking forward to is:Bruce Lee, My Brother
I’ve been waiting for this one since 2009 when I first heard about it. There shouldn’t be any exploitation here.
Bruce Lee’s brother and sister are behind this movie and authorized it.
The rumors are that it will be a trilogy and they promise to give an honest account of Bruce’s real life...
