As reported on EW, if everything goes according to plan, Jackie will be playing the titular role in the STX Entertainment-produced movie.
It was reported that action superstar Jackie Chan is currently in final negotiations to star in the upcoming action thriller, “The Foreigner”.
Based on the hit 2008 novel, “The Chinaman”, by Stephen Leather, it tells the story of a humble restaurant owner in London’s Chinatown who takes the law into his own hands and tracked down a group of terrorists who caused his daughter’s death.
The production studio is also currently looking for a director to helm the film, although rumours are rife that Nick Cassavetes (“The Notebook”, “The Other Woman”) may be directing.
The movie is expected to begin filming in October.
