Default "Im Quitting Action- Movies" --Jackie Chan





Jackie Chan's fighting days are OVER ... at least on camera ... 'cause the legendary actor says he's giving up action movies so he can become "the Asian Robert De Niro."

The 58-year-old was promoting his 100th flick, "Chinese Zodiac" earlier today -- when he told reporters, "This will be my last action movie."

He explained, "I tell you, I am not young any more ... I am really, really tired."

Chan -- who has famously performed his own stunts for decades -- added, "The world is too violent now. It's a dilemma because I like action, but I don't like the violence."

He continued, "I don't just want to be an action star ... I want to be a true actor. I want to be an Asian Robert De Niro."

"I want to get rid of my image. So, for the last ten years I've done other films like 'The Karate Kid' where I'd rather play an old man. I want the audience to know I'm not just about fighting or comedy, also I can act."

I smell him returning to action movies and making some half ass explanation about it when nobody hires him cos he sucks at being a 'true actor'. stick to beating the crap out of people jackie.

i know what movie youre referring to its shown on the Shaolin DVD cant call the name but i honestly think that jackie will return however i feel that he maybe doing this to sort of give his son some leeway (he son is also a martial arts actor who played in Invisible Target with Wu Jing)

you never know though

if they had him, seagal, snipes & carl weathers they would have the best cast of any action film ever.

Sounds about right, dude's like 100.

I'm sure he's arthritic and broken down in all sorts of ways.
