Film crews could be set to capture the sights and sounds of Harrogate for a sequel to a martial arts classic, thanks to its taekwondo academy founder.

Drunken Master launched the career of Jackie Chan and featured the titan of Hong Kong action cinema Yuen Woo-ping. Now almost 40 years on 'Hwang Jang Lee, Drunken Master' could feature Harrogate's own Kambiz Ali, who founded the Harrogate K.R.Ali Taekwondo Academy.
