JACKIE CHAN: THE MUSICAL (PHOTOS)
He is an action movie icon, and now the Hong Kong-born actor and martial arts legend is ready to make a musical about his life.
Based on his 1998 memoir, I Am Jackie Chan: My Life in Action, his musical will be based on his life. From his childhood,where he studied acrobatics, to his family, particularly focusing on his parents, and then to his rise to fame in Hollywood.
“We are looking for a director for the musical right now. It’s all very exciting,” Chan said at a press conference in New York City.
The press conference was part of a series of events that Chan attended over the last couple of nights. The actor also received a lifetime achievement award at the New York Asian Film Festival, which screened his film Chinese Zodiac.
Chinese Zodiac was released in December last year. It is about a man who searches the world for a set of mystic artefacts: 12 bronze heads of the animals from the Chinese zodiac.
The musical would be very interesting to see. We wish him all the best with this new project.
