Legendary action star Jackie Chan
has spoke to a press conference in Kuala Lumpur to promote his latest action blockbuster Chinese Zodiac
, aka CZ12
where he revealed he would be boarding The Expendables 3
has been chasing Chan since The Expendables 2
that he almost made it into the last film:
Sly had invited me to be in Expendables 2 but I was too busy filming CZ12 and couldn’t make a commitment to the film. But he did extend his invitation to the third movie, which I agreed on the condition that I will be appearing as more than just a minor role with a few scenes.
Chan also stated the possibility of making The Expendables 3 as a ‘buddy-buddy movie’ – like a buddy movie, but with even more friendship. Chan said that Stallone seemed open to the idea.
Furthermore, Chan revealed he also hopes to team up with his Rush Hour
co-star Chris Tucker
soon. The script they are currently working with is for a movie with the title Skip Tracer
, but the actor said it could end up being Rush Hour 4
The script is currently viewed by Chris Tucker. Personally, I feel that if he were to pick it up, it would be better if we turned it into “Rush Hour 4″ but I do think that three movies for the franchise is a perfect ending. It would be better to start a new buddy movie with someone new.
Apparently, Chan is having difficulty pulling away from the genre.
