A biopic about late action star Bruce Lee launched the production with a press conference in Hong Kong on Monday.
Aarif Lee, winner of Best Newcomer at this year's Hong Kong Film Awards, will take on the role of the young Bruce Lee.
"Bruce Lee, My Brother's Story," will focus on the kung-fu legend's life-story before he became a star. The film is co-produced by Lee's younger brother, Robert Lee and Manfred Wong Man-Chun. Yip Wai-man, the assistant director of "Bodyguards and Assassins," will direct the film. Besides Aarif Lee, the film features newcomers Jennifer Tse Ting Ting and Gong Mi.
The press conference was held beside Bruce Lee's sculpture located on the Avenue of Stars by the city's Victoria Harbour.
The film is set for release in late November 2010 to mark the 70th anniversary of Bruce Lee's birth on November 27, 1940. Filming is set to begin this month.
