Jackie Chan and John Woo's handprints will go on display at Hong Kong's new Avenue of Stars - as a tribute to the island's top two entertainers.

The handprints of RUMBLE IN THE BRONX star Chan and PAYCHECK film director Woo will be displayed at the Avenue of Stars, modelled after Hollywood's Walk of Fame, when it opens later this month (APR04).

The harbour-front tourist attraction will feature handprints of about 70 Hong Kong film stars, including TOMORROW NEVER DIES star Michelle Yeoh and actor-singer Andy Lau.

The tourism board executive director CLARA CHONG hopes the broad appeal of Hong Kong movies will make the $5 million (GBP2.7 million) display a major tourist attraction.
