Chung Ji-Hoon(Rain)32

Rain, the immensely popular Korean action star who stars in the upcoming NINJA ASSASSIN, has potentially been tapped to play a part in a remake of ENTER THE DRAGON that is being called AWAKEN THE DRAGON.

The film is being made to be a noir interpretation of the original story, which starred Bruce Lee as a martial arts expert who traveled into the underbelly of a Shaolin monk's dangerous underground fight club.  In the new version, Lee's character would be an actual FBI agent. Rain would play the Shaolin monk, Han, played by Kien Shih in ENTER THE DRAGON.

I've heard nothing but great things from the screening of NINJA ASSASSIN at Comic-Con, so I'm confident that Rain will do an excellent job, even though the shoes he must fill are epically huge.  Keep an eye on Rain, because if this pulls through and is a success, he'll quickly become one of the world's greatest martial artists and action stars.
