Sly and Jackie are teaming up!

Duo doing two-hander Chinese co-production

Back when he was continuing on with the “Expendables”- in case you haven’t heard, he’s departed the series – Sylvester Stallone had hinted that he wanted the legendary Jackie Chan to join the cast.

While an “Expendables” movie mightn’t be on the cards for the duo, a teaming still is.

The duo will star in two-hander “Ex-Baghdad”, a Scott Waugh directed action thriller said to be budgeted in the $80 million range.

The film, which Chan will serve as a producer on, is one of the biggest budged films to come out of China.

Deadline has the following plot summary :

When a China-run oil refinery is attacked in Mosul, Iraq, a Chinese private security contractor (Chan) is called in to extract the oil workers. He learns, however, that the attackers’ real plan is to steal a fortune in oil, and teams up with an American former Marine (Stallone) to stop them. The script is by Arash Amel.
