British & Irish Hong Kong movie fans must be in heaven with the knowledge that CineAsia is a homegrown film distributor that knows what they want, qaulity movies and today they annouced another fine movie is heading our way in the shape of YOUNG BRUCE LEE aka Bruce Lee, My Brother.

Known as the Little Dragon by his adoring fans, he is quite simply one if not the greatest martial arts legend ever lived and no matter where you are in the world when you meet a fan of the movie genre right away way they will say Bruce Lee, he is the best, a icon up there next to the Che Guevarra posters, in your dad's dvd collections.

I'm a bit unsure why the movie title has changed
Bruce Lee, My Brother was perfect for the movie here simply because the story is based on Bruce's younger brother's memoirs Robert who happens to be the movies producer. There will be action in this but it wont be in all out action movie as this is like a coming of age story following the stars from his birth on November 27th 1940 to his departure for San Francisco in 1959, discover how Bruce Lee lived through war and persecution and survived the brutal street-gangs of 1950's Hong Kong before going on to live his dreams. The movie is a homage to the man who introduced Kung-Fu style action to the world, from hislive, love, the journey to stardom.

Aarif Rahman stars as the young Bruce does look near perfect look-a-like, Tony Leung Ka Fai (bodyguards & Assassins, Detective Dee) as Bruce's father Lee Choi-Huen and Christy Chung as Grace Lee his mother. The movie is been released in UK&Ireland on May 30th, check out below for more info as well the movies trailer below.
