Jackie Chan prepping autobiographic stage musical

0

Based on his book 1998 I Am Jackie Chan

At a press conference today in New York, Jackie Chan mentioned that he is currently preparing a stage musical based on his own life. Adapted from his 1998 autobiography I Am Jackie Chan, the musical would chronicle his childhood experiences in Peking Opera school, his meeting with Bruce Lee, and various aspects of his film career.

The I Am Jackie Chan musical has been kicked about since 2010, though it seems like it's picking up steam now. Chan said that they are still looking for a director for the project.

If I heard right, I believe Chan also said he is working on a sequel to the book I Am Jackie Chan to be called I Am Still Jackie Chan.
