The story focuses on the infamous and controversial private street fight that took place between Lee (Philip Ng) and the Chinese martial artist Wong Jack Man (Yu Xia) in 1964. There is also a romantic subplot involving an American and a Chinese immigrant, who is under the control of the Chinese mafia. It is inspired by true events, but isn't necessarily completely fact based. The production is financed by the China based Kylin Pictures and was produced by Groundswell's Michael London and Janice Williams. The script was written by Christopher Wilkinson and Stephen J. Rivele. This is the second directing job for George Nolfi, who had previously written and directed The Adjustment Bureau. It is scheduled to be released on August 25, 2017. Check out the synopsis and trailer below.

"Set against the backdrop of 1960s San Francisco, BIRTH OF THE DRAGON is a modern take on the classic movies that Bruce Lee was known for. It takes its inspiration from the epic and still controversial showdown between an up-and-coming Bruce Lee and kung fu master Wong Jack Man - a battle that gave birth to a legend."
