Jackie Chan and Jet Li in Forbidden Kingdom

11 04 2007

Lionsgate and the Weinstein Co. are backing martial arts film The Forbidden Kingdom, which will pair Jackie Chan and Jet Li on-screen for the first time in a movie. The story is based on the Chinese legend of the monkey king. It is about an American teenager who discovers the king’s legendary stick weapon and is transported back in time to ancient China, where he joins a crew of warriors fighting to free the imprisoned king. Li will play both the monkey king and the silent monk, while Chan will pay the monk T’sa-Ho. Director Rob Minkoff (The Lion King, Stuart Little) will begin shooting May 2 for a September 2008 domestic release. (Variety)
