Jackie Chan Planning POLICE STORY 2013

Todd Brown, Founder and Editor
What's this? After making a great deal of noise about the upcoming Chinese Zodiac marking his final foray into the sort of high octane, high risk that built him into an international brand it appears that Jackie Chan may have one more kick at the proverbial can left in him after all.

The China Vision Media Group have announced at a Beijing press conference that Chan will re-team with his Little Big Soldier director Ding Sheng for what is currently being referred to simply as Police Story 2013. Given that the most recent entry in one of Chan's signature series - 2004 effort New Police Story - already began the process of pushing Chan's character towards more dramatic territory with others carrying the heavy stunt load it's quite possible that this will end up following that same mold and remain in line with Chan's promise to start slowing down. But, hey, no matter what it's a new Police Story film with the man who directed one of Chan's absolute best late-career offerings at the helm. And that's a very good thing.

    Awesome news. As you said, Sheng Ding is responsible for one of Chan's best films and best performances, so I can't wait to see that. They should bring back Michelle Yeoh too ; recently she said she was planning a return to action roles. But I know I'm dreaming.
