Exclusive clip from Bruce Lee film Birth of the Dragon
ComingSoon.net has an exclusive clip from the upcoming Bruce Lee film Birth of the Dragon, based on the article “Bruce Lee’s Toughest Fight.” Directed by The Adjustment Bureau‘s George Nolfi and written by Academy Award nominees Christopher Wilkinson and Stephen J. Rivele (Nixon, Ali), Birth of the Dragon tells the story behind the legendary 1960s fight between Shaolin Master Wong Jack Man and a young Bruce Lee.
Set against the backdrop of 1960s San Francisco, Birth of the Dragon is a modern take on the classic movies that Bruce Lee was known for. It takes its inspiration from the epic and still controversial showdown between an up-and-coming Bruce Lee and kung fu master Wong Jack Man – a battle that gave birth to a legend.
A Groundswell Productions film, Birth of the Dragon features Philip Ng (Once Upon A Time in Shanghai, Vegas to Macau) as Lee, Yu Xia (In the Heat of the Sun, The Painted Veil) as Wong Jack Man, Tony Award nominee Billy Magnussen (Into the Woods, Bridge of Spies) as Steve McKee, and Jinging Qu (Old Boys: The Way of the Dragon, Journey Through China) as Magnussen’s love interest, Xiulan. The movie’s villain, a ruthless crime boss named Auntie Blossom, will be played by iconic Chinese artist, opinion leader and television host, Jin Xing. The film’s action sequences have been designed by renowned martial arts choreographer Corey Yuen, a graduate of the Peking Opera School.
Financed by Kylin Films, Birth of the Dragon was produced by Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe winner Michael London and his producing partner Janice Williams, along with Wilkinson, Rivele and Kylin’s James H. Pang. Leo Shi Young, David Nicksay and Nolfi are executive producers, and Helen Y. Zhong, Jaeson Ma and Joel Viertel are co-producers.
BH Tilt and WWE Studios will release the film on August 25.
