Jackie Chan's role in Shaolin aka New Shaolin Temple will only be a supporting one.
The leads will be Andy Lau, Nicholas Tse and Wu Jing. Benny Chan is directing and Corey Yuen is doing action direction.
(Jackie) Chan will play a Shaolin Temple chef.

Well, you could have just that chance tonight, as his family film The Spy Next Door goes on general release today.




It's probably the first Jackie Chan film that I have zero interest in seeing, myself, like.

I dont know, he's done plenty of Western rubbish since the end of the 90s - cant say much of it is worth getting to the cinema for! Though I still have hopes for Armour of God 3 ... as long as its a proper sequel not another New Police Story. I need childish humour and epic ass kicking HK style

Spy Next xDoor is obviously rubbish, but it does have a goofy charm. I mean its much much better than, say, Rush Hour 3.

While some of his recent projects havent been as strong as hoped..

I will give a big thumbs up to 'Little Big Soldier', its very much in the vein of a kung fu movie take on 'Midnight Run' as Jackie's character and Leehom Wang have to form an uneasy alliance

Its being released by Cine-Asia in the UK later this year

Early word on 'Shaolin' does sound promising, and they showed some extended fight footage at the Hong kong Filmart, where you could catch a glimpse of Andy Lau, Nicholas Tse, Wu Jing, Xing Yu (a real lie former Shaolin apprentice, from 'Kung Fu Hustle' and 'Flashpoint') and the great Hung Yan-yan (Jet Li's superkicking stunt double from the early days, who then made a name for himself playing 'Clubfoot' in the later episodes of the film and subsequent TV series)who plays a villainous role

You still can be a fan! So long as you want to pay extortionate amounts to get the out of print Hong Kong Legends titles on DVD. The man is still legendary, I read his book recently it's very good.

Now THAT's what i'm talking about.
Benny Chan is a good bet directorially
and always good to see Yuen Kwei on action duties he, like Sammo creates more physical, impactful action sequences, so colour me excited!

Honestly?
The older school it leans, the better.

New Drunken Master film???? - 2/6/2010 12:15:38 PM

Jackie Chan

So whilst we patiently await the UK DVD of Little Big Soldier (and to a much lesser extent, The Karate Kid) plus the eventual releases of Armor of God 3: Chinese Zodiac, Shaolin and the mooted Flying Duck, news arrives that Chan will revisit the role of Drunken Master!!

Despite recently distancing himself from the original film, it seems like a 3rd DM film may be in the works. Here's a quote from Bey Logan;

quote:


Cine Asia raise a glass to Jackie Chan for Drunken Master 1945

Hong Kong superstar Jackie Chan is to return to his most famous kung fu movie role, in a period kung fu epic from the director of Infernal Affairs.
Cine Asia have acquired UK distribution rights to the film.
Helmer Alan Mak, currently shooting the Donnie Yen epic The Lost Bladesman, is attached to direct.
Chan first demonstrated this unique Chinese fighting form in 1978's Drunken Master, and reprised the role in a belated sequel, 1994's Drunken Master 2. Chan also demonstrated his Drunken Boxing skills in 2008's The Forbidden Kingdom.
Seasonal Films, which produced the first Drunken Master, actually made a much earlier sequel, Dance of the Drunken Mantis, in 1979, and director Lau Kar-leung, who helmed Drunken Master 2, shot a third film in the series.
Besides these, there have been numerous Drunken themed kung fu films, and Chan once observed that, with everyone else drunk, he had to stay sober.
Now, with everyone sober, it seems to be time for him to get drunk again!

In addition to Drunken Master 1945, Chan's representatives at Cannes also announced a number of other forthcoming titles from the Jackie Chan stable:
 
The Break-Up Artist
Chan to work as producer.
Although also directed by Steve Woo, this film will not be a direct remake of 2009's The Break-Up Artist. Due this year.

Letter With No Return
Chan to produce, Steve Woo to direct. Romantic film set to begin filming in October 2010, with a $2 million budget.

Magic Master
Suspense film to star Ge You, with Chan producing. A director is currently being sought, and pre-production is scheduled for February 2011.

Cambodia Landmine
Action/comedy/drama, to be directed by Ding Sheng (Little Big Soldier) and starring Chan. The $25 million production is scheduled to shoot in Cambodia in February 2012.

Tiger Mountain
Mandarin-language action drama, to be directed by Tsui Siu-Ming and starring Chan. Budgeted at $50 million and set to begin production in October 2012, the film will boast 3D special effects.

Manhattan
Action/suspense film. Chan to direct and star. Budgeted at $55 million, it will be filmed in China and the US, and is slated for January 2013.

Last I heard, Chan is taking his time over it, as it will be the last film to feature him doing unaided large-scale action & stunts (he is 56). Clearly Shaolin jumped ahead of AOG3 in the schedule, but hopefully it won't be too long.

Harald Zwart's The Karate Kid is at the top of the US box office atm, and is also getting some good reviews!

Suddenly I'm looking more forward to this!

Really enjoyed Little Big Soldier. More of Jackie's drama chops on display here. Although there is a sense that I would have liked to have seen him do films like this 15 years back (Even if HK wasn't ready for them)

Looking forward to: Magic Master, Cambodia Landmine, Tiger Mountain, Manhattan.

I'm definitely interested in Little Big Soldier, particularly as most reviews and opinions on it seem to be +ve.

You're probably aware already, but just in case, note that Chan is listed as producer only on Magic Master. I've seen nothing saying he'll appear in it. However, that doesn't mean you shouldn't look forward to it!

I really hope Jackie can pull off one more satisfying action movie in Armour of God 3, preferably as the leading man. I think after that I would like to see him playing roles more his age. It would be great to see him playing more roles like the master teaching some young up-and- coming talent and taking a more supporting role.

Interestingly I've just watched one of his old films on the internet Fantasy Mission Force. It's on you tube actually, anyway it was truly woeful making his Hollywood films look good by comparison.

There are a handful of really old Chan films that should be avoided. Fantasy Mission Force is indeed one of them...

I seem to remember hearing someone say it was because the cost of rights to distribute it (with the original Canto soundtrack) in other territories has been inflated too high. It might've been Bey Logan talking about the (im)possibility of it being released by Hong Kong Legends back in the day, but I can't say for certain.

It is a bit mad, though. Even if the cost of the distribution rights is high, it's a title that fans of HK action films are crying out for, and it would sell both here and overseas if it had that all-important original soundtrack. I would even double-dip for it, and that's something I'm strongly against doing.

I saw Robin-B-Hood this weekend, and I enjoyed it in a quirky comedy with fighting kind of way.

Good to see Yuen Biao crop up as well. Really liking Louis Yoo as well after seeing him in this and Flashpoint.

I'm assuming that should have said Louis Koo?!

I didn't think he'd be much cop, seeing as he was obviously initially employed for his pretty boy looks, but he's alright. He's good in Johnnie To's Election and Election 2.
And I'm quite interested in picking up Accident, in which he stars.

Can believed Chan spent 20 years developing it. Also Empire's feature on Chan this issue makes it look like we will be waiting another year for Chinese Zodiac.

which Jackie Can classics are available on blu Ray? Any of his great 80's/ 90's work? I'm thinking the Police Story's, Armour of God movies, project a 1 and 2 etc? I would really love to pick them up on Blu Ray but doubt many of his old school greats have gotten a release on that format. What else can you guys recommend from his recent output? Blu Ray releases only though please! Will probably check out Robin B Hood.

- Flying Duck
- Drunken Master 1945
- Armor of God 3: Chinese Zodiac
- "Cambodia Landmine"
- "Tiger Mountain"
- "Manhattan"
