Jackie Chan headed back to Hollywood for new actioner?


Those that dripped sweat when Jackie Chan recently announced he won’t be doing any more action movies, can wipe it off now.

The veteran martial-arts superstar will produce an untitled English-language (his first in quite a few years!) action movie, which Jay Longino will write, says THR.

Based on an original idea of Chan’s, the story is a two-hander action comedy featuring a detective (Chan) who must track down an American gambler that has skipped out on his debt owed to a Macau casino syndicate. The settings include Hong Kong, Macau, Eastern Europe and mainland China.

Chan had previously said his latest film “Chinese 12 Zodiac” would be his final action movie, due to his… well, aging.
