's character Frankie Lone was originally intended for 'Jackie Chan'. Before production began on High Risk, Chan was starring in Jing Wong
's movie, City Hunter
(1993) (a.k.a. City Hunter). They didn't get along during the filming, and the experience of working with Jackie was so bad that Wong Jing chose to make the character of Frankie Lone a mockery of Chan. Jackie Chan was understandably offended and Jet Li
personally apologized to Jackie for his involvement with the movie. See more
