ENTER THE DRAGON is Getting Remade By DEADPOOL 2 Direct David Leitch
Bruce Lee's classic 1973 film martial arts film Enter the Dragon is getting a remake. Enter The Dragon is one of my all-time favorite martial arts film, and I can't say that I'm excited about the remake. The got a great director to helm it, though! Deadpool 2 and John Wick director David Leitch is the guy who will take on the challenge.
I'm sure that he'll give us something completely badass. I just wish that he was developing an original martial art film instead of a remake of Enter The Dragon.
In Enter The Dragon, "a Shaolin martial artist is pressed to enter a karate tournament on the island owned by the secretive Han, who is suspected of using the gathering as a way to smuggle drugs around the world. The protagonist has his own motivation: revenge. He learns that his sister fought for her life and ultimately killed herself on Han’s island, rather than succumb to rape by a group of Han’s thugs."
According to Deadline, the studio has been trying to "figure out a way to recapture the magic of the Robert Clouse-directed film for years, with filmmakers like Spike Lee and Brett Ratner developing versions of the Golden Harvest release."
Leitch is definitely the better choice but he is really stepping onto hallowed ground with Enter the Dragon. I'm sure that the movie will be a crazy balls-to-the-walls action-packed movie with some epic fight sequences. But... it's Enter The Dragon. I just don't like that they are remaking this legendary Bruce Lee movie!
