We at WM have spoken about the fascinating phenomena of Bruceploitation (李小龙开采) cinema before but it seems that after almost 50 years of Bruce Lee ripoffs (and tributes) the trend still have some steam left in it.

Writer/ Director Romeo Candido (Second Jen, Another Life) has a new project called The Dragon Returns.

And as you might presume the plot of the movie involves Bruce Lee who after staging his own death (for some reason) has to save his friend and fellow Martial Artist Chuck Norris from imprisonment. With a plot like that I can’t wait to see what The Dragon Returns looks like! Also, I wonder what Chuck thinks about all of this.

I hope the movie poster looks exactly like this one!

 

The film will even be one of the 14 project in competition for financial rewards during the 5th International Film Festival in Macao (IFFAM) this December. I know we’ll be rooting for The Dragon Returns for sure.

We’ll  update you about this project as more information comes out and if you want to learn more about Bruceploitation you can get a quick history lesson right here.
