Bruce Lee's life is to be recounted in a new biopic titled Birth of the Dragon.
Nixon's Stephen Rivele and Christopher Wilkinson will write the project for Qed International and Groundswell Productions.
The movie will merge the biopic and action genres and take place in the aftermath of Lee's famous showdown with Wong Jack Man in 1965.
Birth of the Dragon will see the duo join forces to take down Chinatown gangsters in San Francisco, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
A release date for Birth of the Dragon is yet to be announced.
