Variety posted the interview with London back in November and said that the movie began production in Vancouver, Canada. Variety also said that the role of Wong Jack Man would be played by Yu Xia and Billy Magnussen would play the part of martial arts student Steve McKee. Others in the film include Jinging Qu as the love interest of McKee and Jin Xing portraying a crime boss. George Nolfi (Need for Speed, The Last Stand) will be the film's director.
Birth of a Dragon is an attempt to recreate the famed fight between Bruce and Wong, which is still the topic of debate about who actually won. Lee's wife Linda Lee Cadwell said that Bruce won; however, Wong later gave his own different account of the fight. Wong still lives in the San Francisco area and has remained quiet about the making of the film. After the fight, Lee stopped fighting and began concentrating more on teaching. Apparently Lee changed his whole view and technique of fighting after this fight, Lee also began starring in martial arts action films.
