"New" Bruce Lee Movie Being Released In Japan

Using recently discovered footage that Bruce Lee had been editing at the time of his death in 1973, a Japanese film company, Art Port Inc. has produced a new version of his last movie, Game of Death, retitled Bruce Lee in G.O.D. According to today's (Thursday) Yomiuri Shimbun, the new film contains 40 minutes featuring Lee and three other martial artists, "edited in strict accordance to an incomplete script and a series of sketches left by Lee."

The original Game of Death, released in 1978, contained only 13 minutes of footage actually shot for the film. The reedited movie is set to be screened in Tokyo on Saturday and in the rest of Japan on Jan. 20.
