Jackie messages on Weibo about meeting Pele:
Cannes For me from the moment I wake up is work. Meeting, meeting, dinner, a party is indispensable socialising - for me it is not entertainment but work. Every time I see a friend or stranger in a different place or restaurant, I will politely get up, sit down, then get up, sit down and say hello, extra work. See I am most happy when I bumped into the world champion Pele at dinner. A lot of young people may not know him, but in our generation Pele is a legend forever! He is a legend! In the coming year, he will be very busy, because next year's World Cup will be held in Brazil. I am very much looking forward to next year's World Cup!
Jackie talks Expendables 3 - no decision yet on whether he will join the cast:
"[The Expendables team] did contact me, but right now I have not read the script yet," says Chan. "I’d love to work with Stallone, but until I get back next week and meet Stallone and his manager, see the script… that’s when he’ll tell me what happens."
"I’d most like to have a fight scene with Stallone. Though I’d like to team up with him against the bad guy. There are so many action stars involved, it must be so difficult being the director. How do you share out every scene? 'I want to do something special, I want to do something special!' At the end, it’s all small parts, small parts, small parts. I want a big part! I hope I have a big part with Stallone!"
But this fight scene with Stallone... who would win in that fight? "I would", replies Chan with a smile. "I run faster than him."
Police Story 2013 has acquired a number of distribution deals and will be coming to Japan , India, Singapore, Turkey, Greece and Cyprus. It will also be showing in Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar and Laos, Malaysia and Brunei, Indonesia, Philippines and Vietnam.
The plot focuses around Jackie as a police officer who is taken hostage with his daughter and a group of strangers by a bar owner demanding the release of a long-time prisoner.
Jackie reaffirms his commitment to 'less' action even though his upcoming movie 'Skiptrace' is another action film.
