Breaking News : Jackie Chan retires as action star
Advertisement
#1
Actor director Jackie Chan has announced his retirement as an action star. He made the announcement at the ongoing Cannes Film Festival saying that he is too "old for stunts".
The 58-year-old actor, who was last seen as a martial arts teacher in Karate Kid, said he felt really tired. The actor was also quoted as saying that the world has become "too violent" and that he hates "violence".
The Rush Hour actor is at the festival to promote his 100th film Chinese Zodiac. Chinese Zodiac will be his last outing as an action hero. Chinese Zodiac, which is the third in Jackie Chan's Armour of God series, is likely to release in December this year.
The actor, however, will continue appearing in films outside the action genre and said he wants to be the Asian Robert De Niro and not just an action star.

Jackie Chan began his career as a stuntman in the Bruce Lee films Fist of Fury and Enter the Dragon. His first major break was the 1978 film Snake in the Eagle's Shadow. Jackie Chan introduced the comedic kung fu genre in movies with his blend of martial arts, improvisation and humour.

He has successfully crossed over to Hollywood with Shanghai Knights, Shanghai Noon and the Rush Hour series.
