Keanu Reeves has teamed up with Bruce Lee’s daughter to develop a competition show inspired by the late martial arts icon.
The Bruce Lee Project will be co-developed by So You Think You Know Kung Fu LLC, a company whose principles include Reeves, Stephen Hamel, and Shannon Lee.
The competition series will feature a search for “today’s men and women of action”, challenging contestants to work with mentors at The Bruce Lee Center in a bid to become “true warriors who are physically accomplished but, more importantly, thoughtful and spiritual individuals who push themselves to achieve highest human potential”.
Production is set to begin later this summer and the first season will air next year (18).
“Bruce Lee has a legacy of inspiration,” a statement from Reeves reads. “It is exciting to see this legacy of inspiration have the opportunity to reach a new generation in The Bruce Lee Project.”
