Warners offers Bruce Lee role to Rain

Korean singer-actor mulling remake of 'Enter the Dragon'

SEOUL -- South Korean pop singer/actor Rain was offered the lead role in the Warner Bros. remake of Bruce Lee's kung fu flick "Enter the Dragon," J Tune Entertainment, Rain's agency, confirmed Thursday.

J Tune, however, added that Rain hasn't made a decision, and refused to discuss details.

The 27-year old actor stars as an assassin in the Wachowski Brothers' upcoming "Ninja Assassin" set for release in November.

"Enter the Dragon," which is considered one of Bruce Lee's most popular films in the West, and the last before his death, delves into a Shaolin monk (Lee) who is assigned to expose illegal activities on an island. For the film's contemporary take, the company has hired writer Kurk Sutter (also the co-producer for American TV drama "The Shield").

J Tune Entertainment said only that Rain is currently preparing for his next Asian concert tour later this year.
