In a story from Variety it appears that a three-part biopic about martial arts legend Bruce Lee is going to be made. The family of Lee is putting their full support behind the project.

Lee died 36 years ago this week.

Currently, Lee's family is working with China's J.A. Media on a film titled Bruce Lee. The film will go into production this October. Tony Leung Ka-fai will be playing Lee's father. Other cast members are currently up in the air.

Directing this three part epic will be Zhang Yimou.

The first film is slated to be released on November 27, 2010 which is the 70th anniversary of Lee's birth.

"We've read many books and seen many movies about Bruce Lee, but there are many inaccuracies in them," stated Bruce Lee's brother Robert.
