Does anyone know the status of the film, Dragon Warrior that was to use a virtual version of Bruce Lee? The last references I can find are dated from 2001 and pointed to a 2004 release. Lee's widow, Linda, and daughter, Shannon, gave permission to use his likeness.

Maybe the studio finally realised that it'll be another decade at least (if ever) until a computer generated actor can blend seamlessly with a live one (Even Gollum had flaws..admit it).
"Did you know that more people are murdered at 92 degrees Fahrenheit than any other temperature? I read an article once. Lower temperatures, people are easy-going, over 92 and it's too hot to move, but just 92, people get irritable."

I thought this was just another way that studios could get money from an actor they don't have to pay.

Garrett,I thought the whole film was supposed to be digital like Final Fantasy.

From the E! Online story above:
I can't find any articles more recent than the three I posted above from 2001. Perhaps the project was abandoned.

"I can't find any articles more recent than the three I posted above from 2001. Perhaps the project was abandoned." I have yet to hear any additional info since 2001 as I was very interested in the idea. I think it has been abandoned.
