Officials in Hong Kong have announced a design competition to create a museum honoring Bruce Lee, according to a report by the Associated Press.

Hong Kong currently has no monuments commemorating Lee, and his former home is now a "love hotel" that charges couples $30 for three hours of romantic private time.

The Game of Death star was just 32 when he unexpectedly died in 1973 after suffering seizures and cerebral edema while working on Enter the Dragon. Lee's producer, Raymond Chow, said after the autopsy that Lee had died from a sensitivity to the muscle relaxant in a painkiller he had taken for a headache.

Lee's daughter, Shannon Lee, will serve as a judge on a panel with architects and town planners to choose a winning design for the museum, with $13,000 in prize money going to the winner. The government has also commissioned a documentary about the building of the museum, and a biopic about the star. Hong Kong officials are also collecting personal items and memorabilia for the future memorial.
