New Shaolin Press Conference - VIdeo - UPDATED

At the press conference yesterday some more details about Jackie's part in New Shaolin came to light. In a report I have not posted Jackie revealed that he originally had the lead role in the movie but due to other commitments had to turn it down. The part was then re-written into a cameo. Jackie explained that the character he plays is very down-to-earth, illiterate, uneducated and does not know Kungfu but everything he does is very 'zen'. From this simplicity the character played by Andy Lau is able to learn to let go.

Benny Chan boasted that this is not 'Drunken Master' Jackie but a newly invented style 'cooking power'. Jackie immediately said that this is not invented by him but that everything in life was martial arts. He continued to say that working with dough was hard work and that if you do that for ten years, paying attention to strength and technique, if anyone hit you they would just bounce off.

The dialect Jackie's character speaks in is a Henan dialect. It was Benny Chan's idea to have him speak in dialect to make the character funnier but Jackie disagreed saying that it was difficult to concentrate on cooking, on the emotions of the scene, saying the lines and speaking in dialect and thought that the dialect would just be a distraction to the scene.

There was a small snippet of information about the start of filming for 'Chinese Zodiac' - previously Jackie said 'March' but yesterday said that filming, this year, had been delayed because it was too cold and that filming would start in March, or April or May.....
