Something big, bigger than the actual Chinese New Year 2015 celebration, is coming our way! Because Kung Fu legend Jackie Chan is about to team up with Hollywood actor Mel Gibson, in the movie “Dragon Blade” directed by Daniel Lee (of “14 Blades” fame).
The upcoming movie, titled “Dragon Blace”, is a historical action film written and directed by Daniel Lee and starring Jackie Chan. Jackie Chan will play character Huo An, the commander of the Protection Squad of the Western Regions during the Han Dynasty. Framed by evil forces, Huo An becomes enslaved. On the other hand, a Roman general (played by Mel Gibson) escapes to China after rescuing the Prince. The heroic duo come face to face in the Western Desert and a thrilling story unfolds as someone threatens the world and the 2 must team up to take them down.
The movie also stars Super Junior’s Choi Siwon, Adrien Brody, John Cusack, Vanness Wu (ex F4 member), and more. “Dragon Blade” was filmed at a budget of US$65 million, a record breaking budget for a Chinese film.
