He'll star, write, and direct the sequel himself!

For Americans, Rush Hour 3 is a big sequel with lots of buzz. For the more select fans who followed Jackie Chan’s career in Hong Kong, there is even bigger news about a sequel to one of Chan’s most popular series.

“Next year, April the 1st, I start a new movie,” Chan revealed. “I direct, I write my own script. It’s called Operation Condor 3: Chinese Zodiac. Big action.”

The Operation Condor series features Chan as an Indiana Jones-style adventurer pursuing mythical artifacts, with Chan’s trademark style of action scenes. Perhaps the biggest find in part three will be Chan’s return to directing.

“I haven’t been directing for more than 10 years, even though I’m helping all my directors on the set. But now this time I’m totally in control. I write my own script. You’ll see what happens.

This may be the most personal Jackie Chan movie in a decade. “Directing you can do a lot of things. I can put all my messages inside, I can put all my ideas inside. It’s the feeling I create something.”

Meanwhile, Chan is currently filming The Forbidden Kingdom, a Western take on the classic Chinese “Journey to the West” tale, with Jet Li and Collin Chou. He can also be seen soon in Brett Ratner’s Rush Hour 3, out August 10.
