Luke Cage History: From Hero for Hire to Hollywood
TV, Comic Books
Jackie Chan wasn’t kidding last summer when he said reports of his retiring were greatly exaggerated. Since then he’s made the wildly successful Chinese action film CZ12 (a.k.a. Chinese Zodiac), which earned $138 million in China alone. He also signed on to appear in The Expendables 3, which is set to begin filming in August. But that’s not all: According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 59-year-old actor has two more films in the works with the studio behind CZ12, Huayi Brothers Media.
The two films are currently titled Manhattan and Wolf Flag. Manhattan will find Chan New York City-bound as he “converses with love and hate.” Meanwhile, Wolf Flag is described as a “mournful ode concealed in the stricken desert” set in rural China. Both films are currently scheduled for a 2014 release.
Check out this trailer for CZ12 to get an idea of what Chan and Huayi Brothers can do when working together.
