Harlin In Talks To Helm New Chan Pic
A smooth talking American gambler is forced to rescue the niece of a cop in Skiptrace, an action movie to star Jackie Chan and Seann William Scott.
Renny Harlin is in talks to direct the film, which stars Chan as the cop, Fan Bingbing as the niece and Scott as the gambler.
Chan’s character, who has been tracking down the gangster for close to a decade, is forced to bring Scott’s persona to Hong Kong in order to rescue his niece.
Paranorman director Sam Fell was originally due to direct the movie, but eventually dropped out.
Harlin is the director of such big budget pics as The Long Kiss Goodnight, Die Hard 2 and The Legend of Hercules.
