Attention Bruce Lee fans! A new biopic of the world`s favorite martial artist is coming out in November from MediaAsia.
Newcomer Aarif Lee plays Bruce Lee. As told by his brother, Robert Lee, the biopic Bruce Lee, My Brother will tell the story of Bruce Lee before he was forced to leave Hong Kong for San Francisco.
It revolves around Bruce Lee’s life as a rebellious adolescent in Hong Kong until he sets off for the USA and conquers the world at the age of 18 with only US$100 in his pocket. Bruce is introduced to films soon after his birth by appearing in Golden Gate Girl in 1941 as an infant. He shoots to fame at the age of 9 by starring in The Kid with the stage name Lee Xiao-long (literally “Little Dragon”).
As a young man, Bruce is something of a rebel who always finds himself engaging in street fights. His favorite pastime is hanging out in Chinese teahouses with his buddies, Kong and Unicorn, also a child actor who co-stars with him and will later appear in Fist of Fury and Way of the Dragon. His recalcitrant way will eventually get him into trouble with the police, especially after numerous ruffles against foreigners in the then British colony.
Bruce studies the Wing Chun martial arts and tastes his first “public” triumph by knocking out a Caucasian boxer at a tournament with his kung-fu skills. On the eve of his triumph, however, he learns that Kong has become a drug addict and decides to rumble the drug lord’s den together with Unicorn. This renders him the target of both the triads and corrupted cops who want him in jail. To save his life, Lee’s father has no choice but to send him off to San Francisco to pursue his studies.
