Yen in talks to play Bruce Lee
Latest Updated by 2006-08-04 08:13:49

Martial arts actor Donnie Yen said he has been holding talks about playing late kung-fu legend Bruce Lee in a biopic being produced by Lee's family.

Yen, an avid Bruce Lee fan, said he has been approached to play the role but stressed discussions are only initial.

"I don't think anyone can play Bruce Lee. There's too much pressure to play him," said Yen, star of "Blade II" and "Dragon Tiger Gate."

"There would be a lot of preparations to do. I would have to make sure I'm fit," he said.

"Of course I'm very interested in playing the role but I would like to finish my current projects first. I would have to think about it first," the 43-year-old actor said.

Lee's brother Robert Lee announced last month his family will produce a film about the "Fist of Fury" actor, who died at the age of 32 in 1973.

Shooting will begin in January next year and release is scheduled for 2008.
