HONG KONG Aug 1, 2006 (AP)— A movie costarring two of the biggest names in kung fu cinema Jackie Chan and Jet Li is nearly a sealed deal, with the only outstanding issue being the script, Chan said Tuesday.

"All the hurdles have been overcome. The only problem left is the script," Chan told The Associated Press after a press conference to promote his new action comedy, "Rob-B-Hood."

"We need a script that he approves and I approve. If that goes well, shooting will start in March or April in Shanghai," he said.

Asked about the plot, Chan suggested it will be action-oriented fare, saying he and Li must defer to the movie's Hollywood backers.

"It will be more American-style. It will be more suited to foreign audiences than Chinese audiences," he said. "If you make a Hollywood movie, of course you have to follow their wishes. They're paying us so much money."

wtf? Wasn't Jet Li retiring?

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

Jet Li isn't retiring, but he's no longer doing "period" action pieces, I think.

This would have been the greatest action movie of all time if it were made 10 years ago.
Both these guys are past their prime but I still wanna see this.

I saw a trailer for some movie of his that touts "Jet Li's last film." Is this another "Target exclusive" kind of "marketing"

...way too many quotes.

Now that, my friend, is a shared moment.

"They're paying us so much money."

That's all you need to read, really, in regards to Jet Li's retirement. Wasn't Too Short the rapper supposed to have 'retired' from music years ago? exactly. Jay-Z's 'retirement' seems to be coming to an end too according to sources, so nothing lasts for ever especially if the dollar amount is right.

I've waited almost 20 years for this, I've had this wish since the late 80s when both stars rode to stardom in HK. Now the film better be in Cantonese and not Mandarin or English.

I thought I read it was no more MA movies, but he would do a serious acting movie if it came his way and liked the script. He wanted to concentrate on more meaningful work then action. Oh well, hasn't been the first time news has been wrong.
If he is changing his mind, It will be interesting to see his reason why.

You have to wonder how Chan feels about this one:
http://imdb.com/title/tt0114437/

Jet Li leaves the police due to his feelings of guilt after a terrorist incident goes very badly. He becomes the bodyguard to a character blatantly modeled on Jackie Chan and secretly begins performing his stunts as well because the action star has lost his nerve.

JAckie Chan was reportedly very much not amused and supposedly Jet Li made a personal apology.
If I thought I needed to get out in the sunshine I'd play Boktai.

Get Jason Statham to jump in the fray, and Kurt Wimmer to direct and it'd be legendary.

I saw that movie in the theater (Kung-Fu Week at the Roxie movie theater in San Francisco) and yeah...they had a character that was very much a copycat of Jackie Chan. He was always drunk in the movie.
