Will Rain Awaken the Dragon ?


Latino Review has learned that Warner Bros. Pictures is eyeing Rain (upcoming Ninja Assassin) to star in writer/director Kurt Sutter’s Awaken the Dragon.

The film will be a noir-style remake of Enter the Dragon, the 1973 martial arts classic that made Bruce Lee a global star.

Awaken the Dragon is a contemporized drama about a lone FBI agent who pursues a rogue Shaolin monk into the bloody world of underground martial arts fight clubs.

The original 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.
