Script of the biopic on iconic Bruce Lee is in progress says Shekhar Kapur

Vastavam web: Veteran director Shekhar Kapur said the script of the biopic on iconic Chinese-American star, Bruce Lee, is a work in progress.The 71-year-old filmmaker has signed up to co-write and direct the film titled, “Little Dragon”, his first China project.The feature film will chronicle Bruce’s early life before he left Hong Kong for Hollywood and went on to become an icon and Kung-Fu movie master in the 1970s.
Shekhar also believes Indian films have a big market in China.”I used to say Indian films will definitely be very popular in China and yes, they are. ‘Dangal’ has proved what I said,” he told, after completing his chief judge assignment at the 28th Singapore International Film Festival yesterday.He said the film will have new artistes as those who worked in the film, including Sushant Singh Rajput, were much older than the age of actors required for the roles.Shekhar, who worked on the film for 15 years, conceded “Paani” is an expensive project and would cost about USD 30 million.
