Jet Li Going Back To China
It's tempting to beg Jet Li not to go back to China, to stick around making American films because we need him so badly. But really, we haven't been treating him so well lately-- his two most recent English-language films were The Forbidden Kingdom and The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor, and the next project on his list is the cameo-packed but sure to be ridiculous The Expendables.
So back to China Li goes, with plans to star in a movie that--gasp!-- might not feature him kicking martial arts ass. According to Variety, the film is called Ocean Paradise, and will be "very different from his previous movies," as said by the film's publicist Zhang Hongyan. If that's a coded way of saying his recent American movies have sucked... well, yeah, I guess I see your point.
