Jackie Chan Plans New Action Comedy

ON

Jackie Chan is developing a new English-language action comedy, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter. Newcomer Jay Longino has been brought aboard to provide the screenplay, based on an idea of Chan’s.

Set to be produced in China, the comedy will feature Chan as a detective hired to find an American gambler who owes a substantial amount of money to a Macau-based casino.

Though Chan has appeared recently in films like The Karate Kid and as a voice in both Kung Fu Panda films, his last English language comedy was The Spy Next Door in 2010, which failed to find a significant audience.
