New 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 and mainland Chinese actor Liu Ye (Beginning of the Great Revival, City of Life and Death) has been cast as the villain. 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.

Two Jackie Chan projects unveiled





Jackie Chan’s successful collaboration with Chinese studio Huayi Brothers will continue later this year with the production of two more films — one set in New York and the other in the vast deserts of rural China. 

Hot on the heels of the success of CZ12, the action comedy which generated $138 million at the mainland Chinese box office earlier this year, Chan will be producing and starring in the tentatively-titled Manhattan, a film which sees the Hong Kong star playing “a dark hero” who “converses with love and hate”, according to a statement released at a press conference in Shanghai. Meanwhile, Wolf Flag (a tentative Chinese title for the second project) will see Chan star in a “mournful ode concealed in the stricken desert”. Both films are slated for release in 2014.

Part of a slate of upcoming projects that Huayi Brothers dubbed The H Files, the two Jackie Chan films are joined by the previously-announced David Ayer’s Fury, the Brad Pitt-starrer co-produced by the studio and QED.

What movies Jackie Chan really wants to make

"I can do Rush Hour. I can do Legend of Drunken Master. I can do Karate Kid. Then I come back to do [Chinese Zodiac]. Then I go back and maybe I do Sound of Music."

The star of Hollywood hits Rush Hour, Shanghai Noon and the forthcoming Chinese Zodiac is on a brief visit to Toronto to introduce screenings of his Chinese-language classics Police Story and Drunken Master, featured on the lineup of TIFF's Century of Chinese Cinema summer program.

In the video above, Chan talks to CBC's Jessica Wong about honouring cinema of the past, advice for filmmakers eager to access the Chinese market, which actors he admires and potentially sharing the screen with Sly Stallone.
