So, recently the powers that be FINALLY let the remake of The Crow die to the relief of fans of the Brandon Lee original. It’s Brandon Lee, son of Bruce Lee, who was coming into his own when he was famously killed on the set of The Crow, I say relief, because most fans, even most director’ve been against it for the aforementioned reason; hence, it being in development hell for, I dare say, a decade or so.
So, what do they do?
They go after his father’s last film, Enter the Dragon, to remake. WTF, Man, leave legacies alone!
Yeah, it’s kinda dated in look and other aspects by today’s standards, but if there was no Enter the Dragon, martial arts films wouldn’t be what they are today. Yeah, Kids, face it, it’s true. Our man, Jackie Chan, with his cray cray stuff, was taught by, none other than Bruce Lee.
In short, you’re not going to have Bruce reprise his role like they did Carrie Fisher in Rogue One, and speed him up or what have you. It looked off in that film IMO, and with the amount of motion it’s going to require to put Lee in the remake, it’ll look like a video game. And, getting a look-alike’s out of the question…Game of Death, anyone? Look for the cardboard cut out of Lee's face on the mirror, because, at this point, he was dead.
It’s better to legacies alone. You’re not to tarnish his, but a lesser product will churned out in his name…and, that’s just bad business.
What you guys think?
Be good to each other.
