Chan's Dream Dramatic Project Put On Hold
JACKIE CHAN's dream movie, about landmines in Cambodia, has been put on hold - so its director can produce the 2008 Olympic Games opening and closing ceremonies. The film, as yet untitled, was ready to begin shooting and tipped to showcase Chan's dramatic talents - but HERO filmmaker ZHANG YIMOU has turned his back on the project, preferring instead to design the opening and closing ceremonies in Beijing, China. The martial arts legend says, "A dream I've had for a long time is to collaborate with Zhang Yimou on a project. We've met several times in the past year or so to discuss making a movie about the landmines in Cambodia. But then he was selected to produce the show for the 2008 Olympics, so I don't know when we'll be able to work on that project. "The script is already written, we just have to find time to get together and make the movie."
