Rising star lands role as Bruce Lee

A rising star from Hong Kong has been picked to play Bruce Lee in an film that focuses on the late kung fu legend's youth.

Aarif Lee rose to fame by playing a secondary school athletics star in the recent hit Echoes Of The Rainbow, a nostalgic look at 1960s Hong Kong.

The 23-year-old singer-songwriter is a physics graduate from London's Imperial College.

Lee said he was preparing his role by watching Lee's films and practising the wing chun style of kung fu that he learned as a teenager in Hong Kong.
