Jackie Chan’s career revival — Back to China

His Hollywood career wound down, and like his contemporary, Jet Li, martial arts comic Jackie Chan made noises about retiring a few years back.
But he’s found new life in films back in his native China. He’s had a hit there that hasn’t played over here. And two new films were announced on the heels of “CZ12.”
“Manhattan” will package him in a dark action feature about the Big Apple.
And “Wolf Flag” will take him to the deserts of China for something more ethereal in nature.
The Huyai Brothers studio has a David Ayer (“Training Day”) project in the works, and has signed Brad Pitt for another. So they’re stepping up as players with a shot at worldwide distribution and success.

    I don’t think he’s had much of a hit in his ‘native’ Hong Kong in a while either….
