Deadpool 2 director David Leitch is in early talks to direct Warner Bros. Pictures‘ Enter the Dragon remake, according to Deadline. The original film, starring Bruce Lee, was released on August 18, 1973 and grossed about $90 million worldwide (on a budget of just $850,000). The movie debuted in theaters just a month after Lee’s death.
In the film, recruited by an intelligence agency, outstanding martial arts student Bruce Lee participates in a brutal karate tournament hosted by the evil Han (Kien Shih).
Along with champions Roper (John Saxon) and Williams (Jim Kelly), Lee uncovers Han’s white slavery and drug trafficking ring located on a secret island fortress. In the exciting climax, hundreds of freed prisoners fight in an epic battle with Lee and Han locked in a deadly duel.
The site says that Warner Bros. has been trying to figure out a way to recapture the magic of the Robert Clouse-directed film for years.
We’re not sure where the Enter the Dragon remake would fall in Lietch’s schedule, as he has also been attached to Ubisoft’s The Division movie and will next tackle the Fast & Furious spinoff, Hobbs and Shaw.
