Young Bruce Lee film 

In Penang, Shannon Lee – the daughter of the legendary martial arts exponent and actor Bruce Lee – revealed that a film depicting her father in his teenage years will be shot in Penang.

Speaking at a press conference held by Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng at his office in Komtar yesterday, Lee said the joint US-China production tentatively titled Little Dragon will be shot over the next three months on the island.

She said Penang had the perfect setting to replicate her father’s childhood in 1950s Hong Kong.

“Much of the buildings in Penang are perfect for our film, we have been here on the ground for a number of weeks now. Everyone has been wonderful,” Lee said.

The film is produced by Lee and Tim Kwok, who hails from Petaling Jaya but currently lives in Los Angeles.

Kwok said four potential actors have been short-listed to play the martial icon, with one of them having a Malaysian background. He added that locals would be cast as extras in the film.

The film will be directed by award-winning director Shekhar Kapur.

Chief Minister Lim said it was an honour to have segments of the film made in Penang.

Bruce Lee was the founder of the martial art Jeet Kune Do. He was born in San Francisco in 1940 and raised in Kowloon, Hong Kong, until his late teens when he moved back to the United States. He died in Hong Kong in 1973 at the age of 32.
