Zhang Yimou Might Unite Jackie Chan and Jet Li in his Fourth Martial Art Film (MonkeyPeaches Exclusive)

August 17, 2005

During an interview with Chinese newspaper Nanfang Daily, director Zhang Yimou's partner producer Zhang Weiping said they were still working on the script for the long-awaited project with Jackie Chan and they might even ask Jet Li to join the cast as well. Zhang Weiping said this film would show a completely new Jackie Chan and would not be another Jackie Chan comedy. Jackie Chan is very excited by the project but Jet Li has said he would not do any more martial art films unless he finds a really good script. Both of them said they had been looking for an opportunity to work in the same film. Zhang Yimou will do his third martial art film with Chow Yun-Fat and Gong Li first and the shooting will begin in February next year.
