Whatever happened to Jackie Chan?

Whatever happened to Jackie Chan?

Whatever happened to Jackie Chan?

The star of such buddy action comedies as the Rush Hour series is set to develop and star in a new English-language action comedy. His last English movie was the remake of ‘The Karate Kid’.

Chan’s as-of-yet untitled action comedy project is scarce of details but here’s what is being said: Reports say that Chan is developing the picture based off of his original idea.  The film would follow a detective (Chan) who is tasked with tracking down an American gambler who owes a debt to the Macau casino syndicate. The untitled project would involve settings in Hong Kong, Macau, Eastern Europe and mainland China.  Chan will produce alongside Esmond Ren of TIMG and David Gerson of InterTitle Films. Chan’s next project is titled Chinese Zodiac, in which his plays a character named Asian Hawk who “searches the world for a set of mystic artifacts – 12 bronze heads of the animals from the Chinese zodiac.”  Chinese Zodiac also stars Oliver Platt, Caitlin Dechelle and, for some reason or another, Kenny G.

Chan wrote, directed, produced and starred in the action-adventure picture, which will debut in Beijing on December 12, 2012.

Arnold to do remakes of ‘Terminator,’ ‘Predator’?

Arnold to do remakes of ‘Terminator,’ ‘Predator’?

Since leaving his post as governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger has said publicly that he is interested in returning to the profession he loves – no, not bodybuilding – movies. Hollywood has heard the call of the ex Mr. Olympia and he is already considering one of three scripts. During his competitive bodybuilding he organizes every year, the Arnold Classic, Schwarzenegger was asked to give an update on the projects he is viewing.

“Well, first of all it’s more like 15 films, obvious ones from ‘The Terminator’ to remakes of ‘Predator’ and ‘The Running Man’ and all of those things,” he said.

Schwarzenegger added that there’s “also a lot of original stuff too. But I am also packaging a comic book character right now. I’m going to announce that sometime by the end of March or the beginning of April.”

Surprisingly, McG won’t be involved in any other Terminator films after his big flop with ‘Terminator: Salvation’. Justin Lin and screenwriter Chris Morgan, who are currently working on ‘Fast Five’ are now in talks for a fifth ‘Terminator ‘ with or without A-R-N-O-L-D!

Gene Hackman's Hollywood return!

Whatever happened to Gene Hackman? If you have ever seen him in The Conversation, Unforgiven, The French Connection or even Superman, you’ll know he’s one of the best actors Hollywood has ever bestowed upon us.

So where did he go and why? The last movie he did on record was the real bad comedy Welcome to Mooseport with Ray Romano in 2004. Not the best way to leave your legacy, but sounds like he wants to make amends with himself and his fans.

So read on you “Hacks” (Hackman fans), our good friend Casper Martinez over at LatinoFilmChatter.com has the exclusive scoop on his comeback.
