Movie hero Jackie Chan has an odd ambition - he wants to become an actor.

The SHANGHAI KNIGHTS superstar has accepted that his filmography consists of movies that would never win Oscars for their acting content but insists that his twilight years will be spent becoming a thespian.

The 49-year old kung fu expert says, "I think one day I'll have to retire from action. I want to turn into an actor.

"I want to be Robert De Niro. I'm going to make a period drama next year, with no punching. But after that I do Rush Hour 3."
