Thirty-two years after the question was made famous in the 1985 cult classic, “The Last Dragon,” the answer remains the same: It’s actor and martial artist Taimak. The man who achieved global stardom and pop culture immortality with his iconic role as Bruce Leroy announced today the launch of the official Indiegogo campaign in support his long-awaited return to the big screen, “Master.” Co-written by Taimak, the film is a martial arts adventure set in ancient China that tells the story of a reluctant warrior who embarks on an epic journey of vengeance and self-discovery. Perks for backers include a variety of “Master” merchandise, “The Last Dragon” memorabilia, as well as one-of-a-kind experiences; such as a personal training session with Taimak and a private screening of “The Last Dragon hosted by the star.

The crowdfunding campaign, which closes on Dec. 8, seeks to raise $75,000 to produce a proof-of-concept trailer for “Master,” which will be filmed on location in Asia, featuring an international cast of actors and martial artists. To promote the project, Taimak is also kicking off a nine-city screening tour of “The Last Dragon” at Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas across the U.S., where he will discuss the movie’s legacy and his plans for “Master.” The “Master” campaign is managed by IW Group, a Los Angeles-based marketing agency specializing in cross-cultural content, making their first venture into feature film development.
