Jet Li is leaving Hollywood for Hong Kong in the upcoming Xue Xiao-lu directed film Ocean Paradise. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it will be Li's first Chinese-language film since starring in Peter Chan's 2007 action-drama The Warlords.
Taiwanese actress Kwai Lun-mei is set to co-star in the film, which is being produced by Hong Kong's Edko Films. Li had previously announced that he was taking a break from acting to dedicate his time to charity work. But he is finding time to squeeze this project in, along with Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables.
Ocean Paradise begins filming this Wednesday.
