Another Lee biopic is currently being filmed-sounds a bit different,focusing on and up to the events surrounding his fight with rival martial artist Wong Jack- Man

Let's hope it's accurate and not another bullshit job.

From what I've read and heard about that fight in numerous books and interviews, it really wasn't all that interesting a fight. Basically it had both fighters pretty much losing composure, with Bruce ending up chasing after Wong while punching him in the back of the head.

It's main importance comes from it being an eye-opener for Bruce, in terms of how a real fight can quickly stoop down into the most basic and awkward of physical violence.

TBH, that TVB series the article mentions, A Fist Within Four Walls, sounds a lot more interesting. Set in the Walled City in Kowloon. Sadly a place that was torn down before my first visit to Hong Kong. Been to the park and mall that are now there in it's place, including a small free open-air museum showing what life was like in the Walled City.
