Jackie Chan, John Cena to star in action thriller
    2018-06-28  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

KUNG-FU star Jackie Chan is throwing his hat into the ring, teaming up with U.S. wrestling superstar John Cena in an action thriller that has a working title of “Project X.”

It will be helmed by “Need for Speed” (2014) director Scott Waugh, with Cena replacing Sylvester Stallone, who was previously slated to star.

Cena was at the Shanghai International Film Festival last week to meet Chan, where the two reportedly got busy mapping out high-octane action sequences for the film.

Hollywood Reporter cited Chan as saying: “Look at how many on-screen heroes the U.S. has, but China doesn’t have its own superheroes, its own Superman, Spider-Man.

“Monkey King is not really modern. And today’s young people want new, contemporary-era heroes.”

Chan is also rumored to be involved in the fourth instalment of popular kung-fu franchise “Ip Man.” The plot reportedly has Bruce Lee opening a martial arts school in the United States, a move that irks local residents there. Lee’s mentor, Ip Man, has to travel to the United States to help soothe ruffled feathers.

Donnie Yen, who portrays Ip, has posted online that shooting of “Ip Man 4” has started in China.

According to online sites such as Sina, “Ip Man” has a showdown with a character played by Chan.

The face-off, which was rumored as far back as last year, when speculation of a fourth “Ip Man” movie started, resurfaced in the wake of Yen’s latest post.

But no word of confirmation has come from him, Chan or Wilson Yip, who directed the previous three instalments and is back for the fourth. (SD-Agencies)
