Jackie Chan has provided new details about his upcoming epic Big Soldier, Variety reports. The $25 million Chinese production, which Chan produced, wrote, and stars in, takes place during China’s Warring States Period (476-221 BCE). Chan plays a soldier who’s accompanied by a junior soldier (Lee Hom). “It’s an action picture with black humor, plus a bit of romance,” Chan said. The movie is currently shooting in Beijing, but there’s no word yet on when it’ll be released.
