Jackie Chan was recently spotted at the filming of the Hollywood comedy ‘The Spy Next Door. Chan’s latest movie release will be the gangster thriller ‘Shinjuku Incident,’ which is scheduled to be released in Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia on April 2 and in Japan on May 1.

Jackie Chan said he started shooting his new movie in southwestern China, and also Chinese media have described it as a historical epic about a friendship between two soldiers.

The 54-year-old action star discussed on his web site blog on Monday that he was currently filming in the Yuanmou Earth Forest, a Grand Canyon-like tourist attraction in Yunnan province.

Chan said the film is called ‘Dabing Xiaojiang’ in Chinese, which translates into ‘Big Soldier, Small General,’ but did not give further details. An earlier report by Chinese news website Sina.com described it as a historical epic about the friendship between two soldiers set in China’s ancient Qin dynasty.

Chan said the movie, directed by Chinese filmmaker Ding Cheng, also stars Chinese-American pop star Leehom Wang and South Korean actor Yoo Seung-jun.
