Now this is strange to hear but it's true anyway. During the premiere ceremony of his newly-produced wuxia epic LEGENDARY AMAZONS, action superstar Jackie Chan has revealed that he really wanted to be one of the heroines of Yang Family. No kidding. Here's what he had to say below.
It's a pity I'm a man. I really wanted to portray a heroine of the family.
In the Frankie Chan-directed movie, LEGENDARY AMAZONS is based on a legendary story of the widows and daughters of the Yang family who lived during the Song Dynasty. The epic tale revolves around how they battle off against invaders after their male kin laid down their lives on the battlefields. The movie stars Cecilia Cheung, Cheng Pei Pei, Liu Xiaoqing, Kathy Chow, Richie Jen and Chen Zihan.
LEGENDARY AMAZONS hits theaters on November 10, 2011.
