The girl (Nitcharee Wimistanat) trained with Panna Rittikrai. She looks about 10 but I'm sure she can kick some serious ass nonetheless.

Good Luck Chuck - "Chuck (Dane Cook) refused to kiss a goth girl when he was ten, and she placed a curse on him: every single woman he sleeps with breaks up with him and marries the next man she meets. Chuck soon realizes this pattern and becomes hopeful that single women will seek him out as a date, so they too will soon find Mr. Right. He then meets Cam Wexler (Jessica Alba), a lovable but clumsy penguin trainer. However he finds himself in a pickle as she constantly tries to convince him to have sex, but he doesn't want her to marry someone else."hr_Good_Luck_Chuck_9.jpg

Dane Cook, I'll see this.

Great stunts, shitty plot. The best part was when Nathan Jones, for no reason whatsoever, throws Jaa's elephant through a window which just happened to be there.

http://www.aintitcool.com/node/33638They're remaking enter the dragon.

Read about it this morning, totally pointless. Who the hell is going to fill Bruce Lee's boots? Hollywood Can Not Do Martial Arts movies
They're doing it as a noir though. Something different I suppose."I'm surprised it took this long before someone got the bright idea to remake ENTER THE DRAGON but nonetheless we've finally got an announcement today. At least they've decided to put an interesting spin on the original Bruce Lee classic. Warner Independent has hired Kurt Sutter ("The Shield") to write and direct AWAKEN THE DRAGON, a noir-style remake of ENTER THE DRAGON. Noir-style? Yup. Sutter says that he's writing his DRAGON around an FBI agent who follows a rogue Shaolin monk into a world of underground martial arts fights. He explains the film will be more RAGING BULL than CROUCHING TIGER. An American actor will be cast as the FBI agent while Sutter looks to discover a kung fu talent a la Bruce Lee. I'm not sure I see how this is much of a remake of ENTER THE DRAGON, but it's certainly more intriguing than just a straight up remake. Creativity has got to count for something..."http://joblo.com/bruce-lee-as-noir Edited by CaptainCharisma
