David Leitch is truly on a roll , the co director of John Wick is moving and moving at break neck speed. Recently it was announced that David Leitch was all set to direct Shaw and Hobbs the fast and furious spin off now he has decided to remake the iconic Enter the Dragon.
The original was a global hit out of Hong Kong, but its release was marked with tragedy as it came right after Lee’s death.
Warner Bros has been trying to figure out a way to recapture the magic of the Robert Clouse-directed film for years, and many filmmakers like Spike Lee and Brett Ratner have developed their versions , however Leitch who is founder of Gung Fu and is one of the best stunt coordinators in the world seems to be the apt choice .
In the original Enter the Dragon, a Shaolin martial artist is pressed to enter a karate tournament on the island owned by the secretive Han, who is suspected of using the gathering as a way to smuggle drugs around the world. The protagonist has his own motivation: revenge. He learns that his sister fought for her life and ultimately killed herself on Han’s island, rather than succumb to rape by a group of Han’s thugs.
It will be interesting to see how Leitch will adapt the film in today’s time. But one thing is forsure this will be one kick ass film.
We at amdb.in wish the entire team all the very best.
