    Default Awaken The Dragon (Enter The Dragon Remake)

    About two years ago this month, the trades reported that Warner Independent Pictures has set "The Shield" exec producer Kurt Sutter to write and make his feature directing debut on "Awaken the Dragon."

    A noir-style remake of "Enter the Dragon," the 1973 martial arts classic that made Bruce Lee a global star, Sutter said he's writing "Awaken the Dragon" as a contemporized drama about a lone FBI agent who pursues a rogue Shaolin monk into the bloody world of underground martial arts fight clubs.

    Sutter will look to discover a fight star in the role of the monk and cast an established American actor to play the FBI agent.

    Well, guess what? I think they found their fight star.

    You know who Warner Bros. is gung ho on playing the Monk?

    According to my confirmed sources…

    Korean megastar RAIN!

    Now I know what got Megan Fox going gaga over him. Apparently WB is also going gaga over RAIN after what he did for them in ultra bloody and badass "
    Ninja Assassin."



    I just saw "NINJA ASSASSIN" at Comic Con and both Kellvin and I thought RAIN would have been an awesome Storm Shadow in "G.I. JOE: The Rise of Cobra." If Ninja Assassin is any indication, great things are in store for RAIN because his presence is undeniable.

    Original film starred Lee as a martial artist who's drafted by law enforcement to participate in a martial arts tournament and infiltrate a drug smuggling operation run from the host's heavily guarded island.

    "I'm a huge noir fan, and this plot lends itself to the film I want to make," Sutter said. "I wanted to set it in these underground fight clubs where the action is really raw and expose the brutality of Shaolin Kung fu. This will be more 'Raging Bull' than 'Crouching Tiger' in its viciousness."
    God Damn!

    Is nothing sacred anymore?

    ^^^your sig rules

    and this sounds different enough from enter the dragon that it shouldn't even be linked to the original in anyway

    except that means they would have to be creative as far as positioning and marketing it. oh well....

    Jet Li already remade a bruce lee flick and it was a classic, im glad he passed on this one.

    Here is the thing, it's not that im against remaking bruce lee flicks, it's just to me that was his crowning achievement and I think that Enter The Dragon serves better as his memorial, a record of what he could do and his impact. Remaking this film kind of diminishes that a bit.

    ^word the fuck up!
    this is rrrrreeeeeeeeeetttttaaaarrrrrdddeeedddddd!!!!
    on top of that i fuckin hate noir... why is that the craze these days?
    that rain dude looks ill, im jumpin-on-couches-hype for NA but this is just one of them flicks that shouldnt be touched.
    how hard would this have been to tweak a few other details and just completely separate it from ETD altogether?

    well put Tauro
