Chan Goes Sci-fi

New Jackie Chan info via Dark Horizons:

Oriental Daily and The Sun report that Jackie Chan has added this $40 million sci-fi thriller to his upcoming schedule. Chan plays a warrior from the Ming Dynasty who arrives in the present after various portals in time appear care of debris from a falling satellite. Jackie is co-financing the film himself so his salary will be lower than usual, whilst an “unidentified Hollywood makeup artist” will be used to cover the recent facial wound he sustained. Shooting begins in October after work on “Shanghai Knights” and “The Bellboy” is over, with a release date of Chinese New Year 2004.

Even more Chan-goodness set for the future. Interesting how he jumps from movie to movie, while most of the US stars pick and choose and only show up once every 2 years or so.
