A noir remake of “Enter the Dragon”?

Hm, this is a movie idea I didn’t see coming. Variety Asia reports that “The Shield” exec producer Kurt Sutter is writing and directing his own remake of “Enter the Dragon” titled “Awaken the Dragon.” Apparently it’ll be a “noir-style” remake about a FBI agent following a Shaolin monk into “the bloody world of underground martial arts fight clubs.”

I’ll admit, my knee jerk reaction was to declare some sort of cinematic jihad but reading the article, it seems to be an interesting take on it. I’m getting more of a “Danny the Dog” vibe from it, what with the brutal underground fight clubs.

They’re pretty set on getting an unknown for their Shaolin monk character, wonder who that’ll be? My totally unsupported conjecture: Wu Jing, from “Sha Po Lang” and “Invisible Target”.
