Jackie Chan Gets Gritty In Poster For POLICE STORY 2013

From the looks of the poster art to Jackie Chan's upcoming film Police Story 2013, it appears this will be more of a dramatic and gritty kind of animal compared to the comedic, stunt-heavy action thrill rides from the classic Police Story series.

Directed by Sheng Ding (Little Big Soldier, Underdog Knight 1 & 2), the film is not related to the previous installments, with Jackie playing a mainland China Interpol officer sporting a new crew-cut hair style instead of the traditional long-haired daredevil Hong Kong cop. Mainland Chinese actor Liu Ye (Beginning of the Great Revival, City of Life and Death) has been cast as the villain and Chinese actress Tian Jing (Special ID, The Warring States) has been cast as the officer's daughter. The story somehow involves a kidnapping case and Chan must use his wits to save the lives at stake before time runs out.

The theatrical release date in China is on December 24th.  You can click the image below to enlarge.

    You know, after I saw Jackie Chan's martial arts and stunt work in CZ12, I was very impressed. Sure, it wasn't a perfect film, but I gotta say he's still GOT IT!

    I just hope he won't forgo good fighting and action sequences in this new Police Story film.

    I can't wait ! Though I'll miss "jumping around" Jackie Chan, dramatic Jackie Chan is just as intriguing and exciting to me.

    This post looks good. If it is not going to be like the original Police Story series or even any resemblance to New Police Story, then at least I hope it is gritty like his film The Shinjuku Incident. If it's along those lines then I'll be happy.

    Didn't we already get a gritty and dark reboot in the form of New Police Story???

    I think every reboot of everything in the new millenium is "gritty and dark." Lol.

    So why call it 'Police Story'? I know the answer, but still...

    Very bad ass first poster ! Can't wait !
    But the daughter is played by Jing Tian... Liu Ye (Underdog Knight 1 & 2) is an actor and play the bad guy in the movie :-)
