An affectionate nod to the classic Kung Fu films of the 1970s, BIRTH OF THE DRAGON is a dramatization of the true life but much disputed fight between Kung Fu greats Bruce Lee and Shaolin Master Wong Jack Man in San Francisco's Chinatown in 1964. Based on Michael Dorgan's magazine article, Bruce Lee's Toughest Fight, the film is written by Chris Wilkinson and Stephen J. Rivele, the Oscar-nominated screenwriters of Ali and Nixon. They wove together many conflicting accounts of the actual fight and added in fictional characters Steve McKee and female lead Xiulan, whose fates become entwined in the outcome of the fight. A tribute to the films of Bruce Lee, that inspired generations of martial arts fans, the film is directed by George Nolfi and stars Phillip Ng, Xia Yu and Billy Magnussen. The Chinese/American co-production is produced by Kylin and Groundswell.
