Chan, Li in new territory with 'Kingdom'

16 June 2007 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

HENGDIAN, China -- Jackie Chan said that when he first met Jet Li more than 10 years ago they vowed to work together on a film someday.

Now, the two martial arts giants are well under way shooting their first picture together, the $70 million Forbidden Kingdom by director Rob Minkoff, who comes from a background in children's computer animated films (Stuart Little, for instance).

This week, Chan, Minkoff and Los Angeles producer Casey Silver talked about their East-meets-West experiment from the Hengdian Studio, China's largest independent lot, in East China's Zhejiang Province outside Shanghai (there's a full scale model of Beijing's Forbidden City here).

Chan says he was anxious to work with Li but "initially reluctant to revisit the role of a character like 'Drunken Fist, ' " referring to an earlier comedic character some felt was insulting to Chinese.

Begun in earnest in April, the new martial arts fantasy is based on the classic Chinese tale of the Monkey King but is clearly a modern hybrid.

After all, Chan and Li support the central figure, an American boy played by Michael Angarano (Lords of Dogtown, Almost Famous).

What's more, the film is a co-production between Hollywood's Casey Silver Prods. »
