Cohen's "New" Bruce Lee Film a No-Go

by | January 26, 2007 | Comments

Maybe you heard the news, leaked awhile back, that "XXX" and "Stealth" director Rob Cohen was planning on using existing footage and CGI wizardry to put together a new Bruce Lee movie. Or maybe you didn’t hear the news, and now, reading it for the first time, you’re shaking your head, moaning "No, no, no" uncontrollably, and breaking out in a cold sweat.

But not to worry, because Dark Horizons reports that — according to GeeksOn and Twitchfilm — the project ain’t gonna happen. Lee’s family, previously (and inexplicably) on board, has withdrawn its support — and since the family owns the rights to any such projects, its support is crucial.

Dark Horizons speculates that this withdrawal may be related to this week’s announcement of a planned Bruce Lee biopic, based on a family-written book about the star’s life; Donnie Yen is rumored to star.
