Are you ready to finally see ‘Inspector Lee’ and ‘Agent Carter’ reunite?
MGM have greenlit the third installment of the ‘Shanghai Noon’ franchise, SHANGHAI DAWN, to once again bring together international action star JACKIE CHAN with funnyman OWEN WILSON!
JONATHAN GLICKMAN (Rush Hour & Shanghai Noon franchise) will once again serve as producer.
‘Shanghai Noon’ took the ‘Rush Hour’ formula and brought it to the wild wild west pairing up Chan with a wise-crackin’ partner in Wilson. Both ‘Noon’ and the sequel ‘Shanghai Knights’ proved to be quite successful at the box office as each film gross nearly $100 million worldwide.
‘Knights’ even featured martial arts star DONNIE YEN as one of the villains to go up against Chan. If you have not seen the extended version of their fight, check it out below. It is truly awesome to see two of the BEST in the business go at it on-screen.
Let’s hope they find another worthy opponent for Chan the third time around.
