Hot off the heels of the blockbuster hit ‘Deadpool 2’ along with helming the upcoming ‘Fast & Furious’ spin-off starring Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham, action maestro DAVID LEITCH (John Wick) is in talks to direct Bruce Lee’s 1973 martial arts classic ENTER THE DRAGON.

The original movie was Lee’s final film before his death and was a massive hit grossing over $90 million worldwide at its time. It’s also considered one of the greatest martial arts movies of all time and was selected for preservation in the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 2004.

The plot sees a Shaolin martial artist who is summoned by a British intelligence agent to enter a karate tournament on the island owned by the crime lord ‘Han’, who is suspected for using the tournament for drug trafficking and prostitution.

The remake is currently searching for a writer with casting to follow.
