On a Plan to Remake Enter the Dragon
BLACK BELT: Been thinking about the remake. … I’d skip it if the star was a Bruce Lee look- alike — because you know he’d fall short. But I’d watch if it was a TOTAL reboot with Tony Jaa. Or Michael Jai White. Or JeeJa Yanin. Who’s your pick for the star?
Chris Wisniewski: Enter the Dragon is a martial arts classic, featuring a one-of-a-kind superstar … Bruce Lee. No remake necessary. The original is still a cult classic. Maurice L. Zackery: Why a remake? They can make a new movie based on the original characters. John Mills: Mark Dacascos Paul Clark: Donnie Yen for me, great screen fighter and has already done the Bruce Lee tribute thing to death with his Fist of Fury remakes. So he could rein it in a bit and be an older, wiser but equally lethal Lee. Has to be an Asian actor … what about the guy from the Raid 1 & 2 — Iko Uwais? RJ: I’d go [with] Michael Jai White or Scott Adkins or even Marrese Crump. Donnie Yen probably gets strong consideration too. North TX Kenbudokan: I don’t think it needs to be remade [ but] if Michael Jai White was behind it and in it, I would be onboard.
