The film is expected to blend the traditional elements of the biopic with the balletic thrills of wuxia cinema, examining Lee’s life and times while simultaneously acting as a white-knuckle action picture in its own right. Philip Ng has agreed to portray Lee himself, and Yu Xia, Billy Magnussen, Jinging Qu, and Jin Xing will appear in the supporting cast.

Many great men get multiple biographical pictures about them. Abraham Lincoln, for instance, has been the source of many films, from this year's 'Lincoln' to John Ford's 'Young Abraham Lincoln' to 'Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure' (though historians haven't confirmed if those events are true). Kung fu legend Bruce Lee is about to get his second bio-pic.
