Jet Li joins Jackie Chan in the ‘Forbidden Kingdom’


For the first time, Jet Li and Jackie Chan will join forces to to play monks in the Lionsgate-distributed movie The Forbidden Kingdom. What gets me about this story is that it’s essentially a time travel story about an American kid who gets transported back into ancient China and must free an imprisoned king with the help of some warriors. This sounds very much like The Chronicles of Narnia, but maybe director Rob Minkoff might give the yarn a good spin. The team behind the fight sequences in The Matrix and Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon will be choreographing the action scenes. The film will start shooting in May for a possible fall 2008 release.
