The adventure epic written by Bruce Lee Circle of Iron is set to arrive on DVD in a new two-disc special Edition from Blue Underground on May 29th for the suggested retail price of $29.95.
At the height of his international fame, the legendary Bruce Lee – along with his friend and student James Coburn and Oscar-winning screenwriter Stirling Silliphant – began to write what he believed would be the greatest achievement of his film career. Five years after his mysterious death, Lee’s vision would finally be realized.
David Carradine (Kill Bill), Christopher Lee (The Lord of the Rings), Roddy McDowall (Planet of the Apes) and Eli Wallach (The Good, The Bad and The Ugly) star in this acclaimed cult hit that brings Lee’s personal philosophy to the screen with a still-potent combination of mysticism, humor and martial arts mayhem.
Circle of Iron – also know as The Silent Flute – has now been remastered in stunning High Definition and remixed in bone-crunching 6.1 DTS-ES and 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround EX. Extras in this new 2-Disc “Kick Ass” Edition include startling interviews with David Carradine, Co-Producer Paul Maslansky, Martial Arts Coordinator Joe Lewis, Co-Writer Stirling Silliphant and much more.
