The Foreigner Nick Cassavetes Jackie Chan Banner

Variety is reporting that recent "The Good, The Bad & The Badass" subject Jackie Chan is final talks to star in an action thriller titled THE FOREIGNER for STX Entertainment. Nick Cassavetes (THE OTHER WOMAN, ALPHA DOG) is in negotiations to direct the planned movie from a script by ENEMY OF THE STATE and LIVE FREE OR DIE HARD screenwriter David Marconi, which is based on the 1992 Stephen Leather novel The Chinaman.

The film will see Chan going all COLLATERAL DAMAGE as "a restaurant owner in London’s Chinatown who is tracking down a group of Irish terrorists responsible for the death of his daughter." Production is expected to begin this October.

THE FOREIGNER sounds like it will be a little more serious compared to many of Jackie Chan's previous movie (especially his U.S. ones), but the actor isn't done goofing around in his films. Last month we learned Chan will return as Chon Wang in a third SHANGHAI NOON flick.

Jackie Chan will be back as the voice of Monkey in KUNG FU PANDA 3, and the animated movie is set to hit theaters on January 29, 2016.

Sounds like a great action vehicle for Jackie Chan. The guy is still in great shape the last time I saw him in the latest Police Story movie.
