Beijing Cultural Assets Chinese Film & Television Fund Launched

At a signing ceremony today at the Beijing International Film Festival the Beijing Cultural Assets Chinese Film & Television Fund was launched. Dragon Blade is the first film to receive an investment from the Fund. A release date for the film of 19 February 2015 was announced at the ceremony. It was also announced that the film will be shot in 3D. Neither Jackie nor Daniel Lee was prepared to confirm Mel Gibson's participation in the movie, only saying 'it is a big Hollywood star". Filming is underway in Hengdian before the production is slated to move to Dunhuang, a city on the Silk Road in North East China. Jackie expressed concern about working in the heat of the Gobi desert in June / July.



Jackie to Narrate Peter and the Wolf?

Jaap van Zweden, music director for the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra dreams of inviting Jackie to perform "Peter and the Wolf".

Action star Jacky Chan could one day take a break from performing in front of film cameras and appear on stage alongside Hong Kong Philharmonic if the orchestra's music director Jaap van Zweden gets his way.

Getting Chan to tell Sergei Prokofiev’s classic children’s story Peter and the Wolf, accompanied by classical music performed by the Philharmonic, is one of the dreams of Van Zweden.

The Dutchman is planning to build up the city’s flagship orchestra into a top cultural attraction in the city.

"How about we play Peter and the Wolf with Jackie Chan as the narrator?" van Zweden said. "My gut feeling tells me he would say ‘find me a date and I will come’."

Van Zweden said he hopes to organise the concert for the city’s handicapped people, including those who are bed-ridden, so that they also have the opportunity to enjoy classical music – “the food for the soul”.

He said: “We the Philharmonic are part of the community, which is not only made up of successful businessmen.

“Such a concert would enable those with special needs from Hong Kong to enjoy the music and see Chan in real life – something that he cares about as much as we do.”


Dragon Blade Starts Filming

Dragon Blade officially got underway today in Hengdian with some battle scenes. Filming conditions were difficult, as a combination of heat, heavy costumes and a long day took their toll on cast, crew and extras alike.

Jackie and the Green Monster

During rehearsals for the Love, Peace and Friendship concert a glowing green monster was discovered lurking under the stage. It is suspected that it is a former staff member who was left in the dark for too long with only a potent glowing green energy drink to sustain them. Transformed in the dark into a glow-in-the-dark monster, it has been spotted following Jackie around. It is not known where it will be spotted next. Keep a look out!
