    New movie and book about Bruce Lee

    I just discovered this! That will be great to see a movie that is more accurate in telling about the life of Bruce Lee.

    BEIJING, July 24 -- Bruce Lee's family is set to tackle unspecified "fabricated or exaggerated" stories about the late martial arts legend by making a movie and publishing a book about him, his brother said.

    "To this day, many stories about Bruce Lee continue to be told, many of which are fabricated or exaggerated," Robert Lee, president of the Bruce Lee Club, said in a statement.

    "Today, as Bruce's brothers and sisters are getting older, and in order to help the public understand the real life of Bruce Lee, Robert has been appointed a very heavy responsibility from the family to clarify the legend of Bruce Lee," the statement added.

    Robert Lee said the film would be planned and produced by the family, with auditions for the lead role beginning soon.

    He also said he had spent the past 10 years collecting information on Bruce Lee's life for a book, which is being edited and is to be published Nov. 27, the anniversary of Bruce Lee's birth.

    The Lee family and mainland production company J.A. Media will jointly produce a series of other movies, TV shows and documentaries about the martial arts legend, he added.

    Bruce Lee was born in the United States but his fame grew from Hong Kong where he made movies including "Fist of Fury" on his way to worldwide stardom.

    The actor, who died July 20, 1973, at 32, helped to popularize martial arts in the West and opened the door to Hollywood fame for other Asian stars such as Jackie Chan and Jet Li.
