The 2 Things You Can't Do If You Want To Be An Actor In China
If you are a Chinese actor who has dabbled in even the slightest bit of drug use or has slept with a prostitute then it’s fair to say that your career might be over. Chinese officials for the state administration of press, publication, radio, film, and television have declared that any film starring any actor who has been arrested on either drug or prostitution charges isn’t allowed to be screened on either the big or small screen.

Jackie Chan Explains Why He Turned Down Expendables 2 And 3
These movies so far have been overstuffed to the point of parody. The latest film tries to find space for two full Expendables teams, reducing Jet Li to a tiny cameo and four spoken lines, and he doesn't even throw any kicks. And Wesley Snipes seems like a selling point for the new movie, but after a major break-in that frees him, he and the rest of the Expendables are (temporarily!) fired and replaced by the new crew.

CinemaBlend's Action Hero Hall of Fame: The 2014 Inaugural Class
We tried to spotlight performers who had a single concentrated peak of their talents, while also addressing those who put a premium on action films over any other genres, even when the films would get disreputable. To be in the Action Hall Of Fame, you need b-movies on your resume as much as you need A-movies.

Jackie Chan, Seann William Scott Doing A Renny Harlin Film Means This Must Be 1999
Renny Harlin is in negotiations to direct Skiptrace, a Jackie Chan vehicle that will co-star Seann William Scott. Should he sign on, he'd be replacing Sam Fell, ParaNorman director who was set to make his first live-action feature here.

Nicolas Cage, Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes And Milla Jovovich In Talks For Expendables 3
All four actors have plenty of action genre cred that should help the four new stars fit in quite well with the rest of the ensemble cast. The question that remains, however, is how the four characters will be used. I'd personally want to see Chan, Snipes and Jovovich join up with the good guys and then cast Cage as a ridiculously over-the-top bad guy with plans for world domination. But what do you think?

Jackie Chan Is Up For The Expendables 3
According to reports, Chan said, "Sly had invited me to be in Expendables 2 but I was too busy filming CZ12 and couldn't make a commitment to the film. But he did extend his invitation to the third movie, which I agreed on the condition that I will be appearing as more than just a minor role with a few scenes."

Rush Hour 4 Could Be More Likely Than You Think
Pressed for plot details Sarkissian mostly seemed to be spitballing, and he said they're still looking for a screenwriter-- and that even bringing back director Brett Ratner, who was responsible for the previous three films, wasn't a given. "If he wants to do it he’s more than welcome to do it but he’s got to do it in the right way.” Ouch

Jackie Chan Helps Lead A Revolution In Newest Trailer For 1911
While his martial-arts skills have always ranked Jackie Chan among the greatest action stars of all time, the Chinese actor is also well known for choosing comedy over drama. Hell, even his more serious films have a sense of levity simply because you can't help but smile and laugh as Chan pulls off death defying stunts and kicks serious ass...
