Presently, Chan is in Taipei as a major aspect for the upcoming blockbuster called “Draining Steel,” which is a science fiction/activity film. In it, Chan plays an exceptional power specialist who needs to shield a lady from a criminal association. Guess what, Chan himself committed that the role in the upcoming movie has dragged him out of the comfort zone. Jackie adding to his words said that –
Of course, I am not very confident with science-fiction. I don’t know much about it. Therefore I only make Jackie Chan-style movies. This is a sci-fi movie, and at the same time, it’s not a sci-fi movie. So this gives me more confidence. And the character is also a challenge. In the past few years, people may have noticed that I tried hard to change my image. I hope people know that I am not only an action movie actor. I am an actor.
The 4 honorary Oscars will be manifested at the Academy’s 8th Annual Governors Awards in Los Angeles on November 12. Stay tuned for further updates.
