A film commemorating kungfu film star Bruce Lee began filming earlier this month in Sichuan's Luzhou Fangshan Natural Scenic Area. The film, 《双节棍》 (which means "Nunchucks," but there seems to have been no mention of it yet in any English-language media, and no word on whether it will be released in English), is scheduled to premier on November 27 of this year, which would have been Bruce Lee's 70th birthday.
But filming has already hit a stumbling block, in the form of a tree stump. It was reported today that Chen Tianxing injured his lower back by rolling into the stump while performing a stunt in the forest. Despite doctor's advice that he confine himself to bed rest for three months, Chen returned to the set the next day, this time armed with painkillers and an on-set doctor.
The film stars several graduates of the Luzhou Tianxing Film and Television Institute and choreographer Sang Lin (桑林) and is a joint project funded by studios in Shanxi and Beijing, as well as the Luzhou Tianxing Film and Television Institute.
And finally, just for fun, a Bruce Lee-inspired short.
