According to Asian cinema site MonkeyPeaches.com, Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson is being considered to helm a new film starring Jet Li and Jackie Chan.
The site says that Jackson is hardly confirmed for the project, but has either been approached for or has accepted the gig, though no official word has been released.
The report also says Jet Li will be paid $9 million to play the villain bad guy in the film, which will be an adaptation of the Chinese Journey to the West epic tale about a modern day martial artist who travels back in time and encounters the Monkey King.
Funny how they spin it, eh? Jackson is being considered by Chan and Li.Uuuum, I think the Lord of the Rings trilogy made more money than every single film Chan and Li have made combined, so the relaity is more like Jackson might consider directing their little kung fu film if they are lucky!
