Bruce Lee - Bruce Lee Museum Plans Halted In Hong Kong
Plans to build a museum dedicated to martial arts legend Bruce Lee in Hong Kong have been postponed after stalled negotiations.
Hong Kong tycoon and billionaire philanthropist Yu Panglin, who currently owns Lee's former two-storey home in the Kowloon area, had decided to donate the building to the city to pay tribute to Lee.
His plans to turn the house into a tourist attraction were given the green light in 2009 after locals and government officials approved the venture, in order to preserve Lee's memory.
However negotiations between Panglin and the Hong Kong government have now broken down, halting the project indefinitely, according to the Associated Press.
The Hong Kong government released a statement which reads, "Despite our efforts, we are unable to reach a consensus with the property owner over the scope of the restoration."
Enter the Dragon star Lee died in 1973, aged 32.
