In response to the wishes of action fans the world over, martial arts masters Jackie Chan and Jet Li will co-star together in a brand-new movie. That’s pretty much all the info we have so far, but it’s a pretty cool piece of news all the same.
From Sina.com & The AP: "Jackie Chan and Jet Li — two of the biggest names in action cinema — plan to join forces, a news report said Tuesday. The stars have signed on to do a movie tentatively named the "J&J Plan," the Chinese news Web site Sina.com said. They’re still brainstorming about the plot for their first collaboration, which begins filming next year, the Web site said.
A formal announcement and pre-sales will be made at the Cannes Film Festival, which starts Wednesday and ends May 28, the report said. The two actors made their names as action stars in Hong Kong before moving on to Hollywood. Trained in Peking Opera, Chan pioneered his own comedic fighting style. Li is a former martial arts national champion in China."
