Attention, Browncoats! Joss Whedon’s Firefly Online Game Announced at Sdcc

If there’s anything that can get a geek fist raised in frustration, it’s the mention of the beloved television show Firefly that was ended too soon for devoted fans.

Here’s a blurb from the creators:

Jet Li heads to China for dramatic role

Martial Arts star and all-around master of bad-assery Jet Li will head back to Chinese filmmaking with the upcoming drama Ocean Paradise.

This film marks Li’s first Chinese project since 2007’s The Warlords from Peter Chan.

Ocean Paradise also stars Kwai Lun-mei (All About Women) and will be directed by Together With You scribe Xue Xiao-l.

Details of Ocean Paradise are still unknown. However, seeing Li tapped for a “drama” instead of high-flying actioner should give readers a double-take. The 46-year-old Wushu champion just wrapped up filming of Sylvester Stallone’s action ensemble The Expendables and was last seen in the States via The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor and The Forbidden Kingdom.
