On a Plan to Re­make En­ter the Dragon

Black Belt - - COMMUNITY -

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.
