I’m starting to worry a little about Jackie. Last week it was announced that Rush Hour 4 is on the way, and now there is news that Jackie wouldn’t be against having a role in the Expendables 3. Jackie’s actually stated that he had to turn down a number of things in order to finish Chinese Zodiac. This includes fundraisers, charity events, and film roles. Hear about it from Jackie himself:
He’s also mentioned this in another video at Comic-Con, but it’s a little longer. I knew that Jackie and Sly were friends, and it doesn’t seem weird that Stallone would offer him a role. What’s weird is thinking about how Jackie would be put in the film. It’s hard to imagine Jackie in a gory, action filled flick (at least for me.) Jackie’s against violence, though he’s done the Shinjuku Incident and 1911.
As excited as I should be for this news, it’s just something that doesn’t seem right to me. Jackie wants to do more drama and less action, so why Rush Hour 4 and Expendables 3? Maybe it would be cool to see Jackie run-and-gun, but it sure would feel weird.
What do you guys think? Would you be excited to see Jackie in the next Expendables film?
