The story centers on a Hong Kong cop (Jackie Chan) whose niece (Bingbing Fan) is kidnapped by the crime syndicate leader he has been trying to put away for over a decade. He is forced to track down the only person who can help find his niece, a wise-cracking American gambler (Seann William Scott).
Sam Fell (ParaNorman) was initially attached to make his live-action debut, although he is no longer attached. Brian Gatewood, Alessandro Tanaka and Jay Longino wrote the screenplay, based on an original idea by Jackie Chan. Production is scheduled to begin in August. The project was originally set up at Exclusive Media Group, but since that company's disintegration, parent company Investment Strategies B.V. has moved it to one of their subsidiaries, Dasym Entertainment.
Renny Harlin most recently directed The Legend of Hercules starring Kellan Lutz.
