High-kicking star Jackie Chan has signed up to join Steve Martin in the new PINK PANTHER movie.

Chan will play INSPECTOR CLOUSEAU's hapless servant KATO in BIRTH OF THE PINK PANTHER - following the news Martin has secured the role famously played by the late Peter Sellers in the hit series of comedies.

Chan replaces Burt Kwouk in the role, which will see Kato joining Clouseau in trying to solve the murder of the French soccer team manager.
