Jackie Chan is NOT retiring from action movies

0

Last week we reported that Chinese Zodiac will be Jackie Chan's last big action movie. We and many other news sources took this as a sign that Jackie Chan was retiring from the genre. Turns out, he has no intention of quitting action movies, but is planning to be more cautious and careful with what he does. Who told me this? Jackie Chan.

Here's a key excerpt from a statement on Jackie Chan's official Facebook page:

I just want to let everyone know that I am not retiring from doing action movies. What I meant to say is that I need to do less of the life risking stunts on my movies. After all these years of doing so many stunts and breaking so many bones, I need to take better care of my body so I can keep working.

I will continue to do international action movies.

While we won't be seeing another death-defying Police Story-style production again, you can't keep the man down entirely. We'll post the first trailer for Chinese Zodiac later this morning. After the cut, Jackie Chan's full Facebook statement.

From Jackie Chan's Facebook page over the weekend:

Yesterday in my press conference in Cannes for Chinese 12 Zodiac I said that this movie was my last big action movie.

Today I was shocked when I woke up to read all the news coverage that I was retiring from doing Action movies.

I just want to let everyone know that I am not retiring from doing action movies. What I meant to say is that I need to do less of the life risking stunts on my movies. After all these years of doing so many stunts and breaking so many bones, I need to take better care of my body so I can keep working.

I will continue to do international action movies.

And I will keep improving my English :-)

I love all of you!

Jackie
