I'm Sorry Peter Jackson: Rob Minkoff to Direct Jet Li - Jackie Chan Collaboration

by | August 25, 2006 | Comments

The most recent update in the speculation race surrounding Jet Li and Jackie Chan‘s planned co-starring venture names kid-flick helmer Rob Minkoff to direct, not the Lord of the "Lord of the Rings" Peter Jackson — which may or may not please fans eagerly anticipating the flick.

Jackson was rumored to be in the running to direct the Jet-Jackie flick based on the Chinese legend, "Journey to the West," but the latest scoop (courtesy of — who else? — MonkeyPeaches.com) quotes China Film Group president Han Samping, whose company "is expected to co-produce the project."

Another new detail on the film, also called "The J&J Project," sheds some light on the story, which if true makes sense of the Minkoff connection:

"The J&J Project is about a New York kid [who] travels to the ancient China to rescue the Monkey King and to learn the true meaning of Kung Fu."

And just who is Rob Minkoff? He’s the director of such family-friendly flicks as "The Haunted Mansion," "Stuart Little" and "Stuart Little 2," and made this little animation flick back in 1994 called "The Lion King."
