The book “The new German Jackie Chan film guide” sets new standards for fans of the Kung Fu legend
Who would have thought that Jackie Chan would still be making action films in 2018 – at the age of 64? With the filming of “The Foreigner” (2017) with Pierce Brosnan, a serious action drama emerged in which Jackie could shine as an actor. And then events rolled over.
The 40th anniversary of the Jackie Chan’s stunt team (Sing Ga Ban), the receipt of the honorary oscar for his life’s work and the announcement of the long-awaited English translation of his second autobiography from 2015. Jackie set a new standard and gave me the impetus for a new book. The time was right and work on “The new German Jackie Chan film guide” was already in full swing.
The fact that “The new German Jackie Chan film guide” is being published almost exactly ten years to the day after its predecessor’s release date may be a coincidence or fate. Fact is that everything will be different with this book.
