Rumor has it that Warner Pictures is remaking “Enter the Dragon”, a classic martial arts movie that is a cornerstone of Bruce Lee’s career, and will be starring Korean pop star Rain. You’ll recognize him from Speed Racer and Ninja Assassin.

We’re still not quite sure that a pop star can do the great Bruce Lee justice but we’ll wait until we hear official word the movie is being made before we start passing judgment.

“The Shield” exec producer Kurt 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.

???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.???

We can’t argue with an excuse to make a martial arts film with a bunch of underground fighting scenes…just don’t get your hopes up for it to ever come close to the original.
