So it looks like you’ll finally get to see that Bruce Lee origin story you always wanted to see up on the big screen. And no, that doesn’t mean we’re getting a Bruce Lee biopic – this is the origin story (you know, like the kind that Wolverine got) of Bruce Lee-the-movie-character, who it seems sits in a bizarre middle-ground somewhere between the real Bruce Lee and his big-screen persona. “Birth of the Dragon” is taking inspiration from a real life duel that Lee had with China’s most famous kung-fu master, Wong Jack Man, and that will serve as a jumping-off point for a potentially franchise-launching action movie in which Lee and Wong team up to fight a band of Chinatown gangsters.
