Blurb/Logline:
A "What If" premise based on the lives of Bruce Lee and Brandon Lee, that features Bruce coming out of hiding in a remote Buddhist monastery, to avenge Brandonís death.

 

Synopsis:

KC and his son are old students and family friends to the Lee household. Years ago, Bruce had made KC promise to look out for Brandon, just in case something happened to him. They now (mid-90ís) run a Bodyguard Service/Detective Agency in Los Angeles. Everything was fine, then 'The Crow' mysteriously took Brandonís life away. The African American private eyes go to Carolina to investigate Brandon Lee's painful and puzzling death. While there, they find a long lost map. They follow the map and brave many perils but finally find Bruce alive, his martial arts skills, even deadlier than ever. Bruce joins KC and his crew to avenge the murder of his son, so that Brandon's soul can rest peacefully.

 

Bruce is to martial arts films what Jimi Hendrix was to the electric guitar. The story is a breath-taking, one-inch-punch, a true action/adventure story. It vividly conveys the cerebral elements of Martial Arts, while dazzling the audience with emotion-filled, super human fight scenes (ie The Matrix, Crouching Tiger-Hidden Dragon, Blade, Romeo Must Die). The fan base is already VERY, VERY STRONG, therefore the risk of losing money on this project or not finding funding is virtually non-existent.
