Jackie Chan Projects:About.com recently sat down with martial arts actor Jackie Chan, who stars in next week's Around the World in 80 Days, to discuss his future slate...
So, you always say you don’t like Rush Hour, but you’re doing Rush Hour 3?
I don’t like them, but the audience likes it. Yeah, I have to do like Rush Hour 3 [after] Around the World in 80 Days. See the difference. That’s a more serious, a little bit serious, but this one is totally for a family movie. Then I go back to Hong Kong. Okay, I make New Police Story, heavy drama, very heavy. Waaah, like this. Then I turn into The Myth. The Myth is more like Indiana Jones. Not very technology. It’s like an old fashioned story.
Is that what used to be called Time Breaker/Titanium Rain?
No. [That] stop[ped]. See, William Morris took so long. New Police Story, The Myth is my own company, JCE, Jackie Chan Empire. So quick, I just called the director and make it. I really hope you get to see the Police Story. I don’t want a meeting, I don’t have a meeting, I just pick up the script, go. On the set I can change whatever I want.
Does New Police Story have a US distributor?
I’m not going to sell it. Why? Because you know the problem.
What is The Myth?
The Myth is totally different than 80 Days and New Police Story. It’s like Indiana Jones. I’m going to find the Ching Dynasty tomb. And also help the American NASA do something. But myself is an archeologist. I have to go to India. There’s a very fantasy in the movie.
Wasn’t Armor of God your Indiana Jones franchise?
Yes. Suppose I want to be Armor of God 3, but after Stanley the director said, “Let’s make a new thing.” Okay, then becoming The Myth.
Are you doing Joe’s Last Chance?
What? Chinese script? American Film? What’s the name of it?
