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.

Ed Sheeran engaged to girlfriend Cherry Seaborn
LONDON — British Ed Sheeran has become engaged to his girlfriend Cherry Seaborn, the 26-year-old singer-songwriter announced on his Instagram page on Saturday. The proposal took place last month.
“Got myself a fiance just before new year. We are very happy and in love, and our cats are chuffed as well,” he told his 18 million followers on Instagram.
Sheeran is one of the best-selling artists in the world and his latest album ‘Divide’ smashed Spotify records, drawing 57 million listens on the first day of its release — nearly twice the previous highest.
Sheeran and Seaborn, who are childhood friends, have reportedly been dating since 2015.
“It’s awesome meeting famous people. But that’s not life. That’s not reality. One day this will end,” he told The Sunday Times newspaper last year.
“And I know the one person that’s going to remain constant is Cherry.”
After several years of playing on the street and in bars, Sheeran won breakthrough international success with his 2014 love ballad ‘Thinking Out Loud’.
According to the BBC, Sheeran and Seaborn, 24, met in high school in their native UK and have been dating for about three years. She attended Duke University in North Carolina, where she also played hockey. She later helped England’s U21 team win a bronze medal at the 2012 European Championships.
