KATHMANDU — Veteran actors Jackie Chan and Sylvester Stallone are teamed to star in action film ‘Ex-Baghdad’.
The film that matches up two global action stars Chan and Stallone for the first time is an $80 million budget film — one of the biggest budget films to come out of China.
Chan will serve as a producer through his company SR Media, with Qi Jianhong and Talent International’s Esmond Ren. SR Media and Talent International will also finance the film. Hans Canosa is also producing.
The story centers on two ex-special forces soldiers who must escort a group of civilians along Baghdad’s “Highway of Death” to the safety of the Green Zone, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
“Need for Speed” director Scott Waugh is in negotiations to helm the movie, which is expected to be made on a budget of USD 80 million.
Talent International is set to finance with Chan, Hans Canosa, Esmond Ren, and Joe Tam producing.Follow @gorkhapost
