Despite his untimely death in 1973 at age 32, Bruce Lee helped to create and popularize a genre that still endures and influences today with roles in films including Fist of Fury, Way of the Dragon and Enter the Dragon.

Bruce Lee Entertainment will produce the project in collaboration with Lawrence Grey (Hope Springs) and Janet Yang (The Joy Luck Club).

In the statement, Shannon Lee said the film will explore her father's writings, art and philosophies in addition to his martial arts stardom.

Neither a star nor a director has been set for the film.

The 1993 biopic Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story was based on widow Linda Lee Cadwell's book.
