    Thumbs up FORBIDDEN KINGDOM: the movie

    I heard about it a while ago on Cinescape, that they both signed on to do a movie together, and even though there wasn't a script yet. Does anyone know what happened with that, and can give us an update? Thanx.

    Is there anything else about it? Like a name for the movie, date for when they start shooting, screenplay, something?

    I heard that rumor like a year before but I thought that someone's manager/agent/whatever came out and denied them as just rumours. IF this will ever happen it will be the greatest movie in history. Period
    All right now, son, I want you to get a good night's rest. And remember, I could murder you while you sleep.
    Hey son, I bought you a puppy today after work. But then I killed it and ate it! Hahah, Im just kidding. I would never buy you a puppy.

    Jet & Jackie in Forbidden Kingdom

    While this isn't really new to most of us here, I found a recent article and figured I'd share it. Still a rather nebulous project at this point, but we can all hope. Near the end of the article, Jackie also responds about his drunken hijinks at the Jonathan Lee concert in Hong Kong last month.

    Jackie Chan: Movie Deal With Jet Li Near
    Aug 1, 1:12 PM (ET)

    By MIN LEE

    HONG KONG (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."

    He also revealed he will soon start shooting the third installment of the popular action comedy series "Rush Hour" with Chris Tucker, spending about a dozen days in France starting in September, followed by 10 days of shooting in New York and further filming in Los Angeles. He said the movie will wrap by March or April next year.

    To cap off a busy filming schedule, Chan said he is also due to shoot a film in Japan that translates as "Shinjuku Incident" with Hong Kong director Derek Yee. He declined to reveal the plot, only saying it is based on a true story.

    Asked about a recent Hong Kong pop concert that Chan disrupted with a surprise, somewhat drunken appearance on stage, he said he's resigned to the fact that his actions generate news.

    "I'm used to it. I'll definitely be written about. I don't blame the writers," he said.

    Chan appeared unannounced on stage at Taiwanese singer-songwriter Jonathan Lee's concert in Hong Kong last month. He then insulted the band and replied to heckles from the audience with a coarse insult.

    But Chan, who has apologized for the incident, expressed frustration at the level of attention it drew.

    "Everyone in the world has made mistakes, but it's just that we're celebrities. TV station managers, magazine editors, who doesn't drink, who doesn't get drunk?" Chan said.

    good article

    I still doubt they will ever make a movie togethter. Meltdown starring Jet Li and Jackie Chan err, Jackei Cheung I mean was just a little too forward making fun of Jackie.

    And what is up with Jet? He says he is done with martial arts movies. Next thing we hear about is "the one" part 2 or some crap like that and then the tsui hark film, and now this?

    Jackie Chan & Jet Li team up

    Jackie Chan and Jet Li are close to signing onto a film, together!

    "All the hurdles have been overcome. The only problem left is the script.
    We need a script that he approves and I approve. If that goes well, shooting will start in March or April
    in Shanghai" Chan told The Associated Press after a press conference to promote his new action comedy,
    "Rob-B-Hood."

    He went onto confirm that it will obviously be action oriented. "It will be more American-style. It will be
    more suited to foreign audiences than Chinese audiences."

    from an industry memo

    He said "Fearless" is going to be his last Kung Fu movie, not action movie. What does he mean by not doing any more Kung Fu movies but still doing action movies? After "Fearless", we probably won't see anymore great fight scenes from him.

    Jackie's right about the media needing to lay off of him. We've all gotten drunk and acted like an idiot at some time or another. And it's not like he got a DUI and then went on an anti-semitic rant or something crazy like that. And besides, he is the Drunken Mastah!
    I sure hope Jet keeps making kung fu flicks. If not for Fist of Legend I never would have known how to deal with an evil samurai using just my belt. That's knowledge that'll help you in real life.
