UPDATE: Got news via Film Combat Syndicate that the project is getting a complete facelift. ‘The Old Soldier’ is now renamed to THE BODYGUARD with a whole new storyline. SAMMO HUNG will still be directing the film along with having a starring role. Sadly, it looks like JACKIE CHAN is no longer involved with the project. Hong Kong superstar ANDY LAU (Firestorm) will be filling in.
NEW SYNOPSIS: The story of the movie follows a retired bodyguard (Hung) who has settled in the dark and unknown corner of the world where China, Russia and North Korea meet. Suffering from the beginnings of dementia, the bodyguard is befriended by a young girl whose life is threatened when her father (Lau) falls in with the local crime world. When the girl and her father disappear, the bodyguard must call upon his long forgotten skills to save the life of his young friend.

Marking the first time since 1997’s ‘Mr. Nice Guy’, SAMMO HUNG (Ip Man 2) will direct JACKIE CHAN (Police Story) in THE OLD SOLDIER.
The film will follow Chan as a thief who steals some valuable jewelry in Vladivostok and finds himself pursued by both U.S. and Russian law enforcement.
ANDY LOWE and LIU HUA co-stars with filming to begin in late September.
