His father was a renowned stage performer, Bruce made about 20 films as a child actor in Hong Kong films. He also got in trouble in school and had fights. One story goes that he beat up a member of an HK mobster and that prompted his move at age 18 to SF invoking his US citizenship for the first time.
It would necessitate a big budget film to create the 1970s California.
I think his life story rights are tied up with his widow Linda Lee
and she would have script approval and probably not approve of a version she doesn't like. Where to find out about this?
I bet Quentin Tarantino would back a great Bruce Lee biopic.

Ralph is actually photographed better in the End of the Affair. He luminescent eyes with an intense stare and beautiful skin. that why these two movies are part of my larger category of films call Women's porn. That is yet another post or maybe a whole thesis. At least a New Yorker type article.
Basically it is that these two RF films seem to actually take the woman's point of view into account--which I don't see a lot in many contemporary films. Esp, from a sexual point of view.I do know that in some of the historical films of the 1930-50s, the studios realized there was substantial regular- going female( paying) audience So they did have "women's films." And had actors who they knew would appeal to some or many women in the audience...
