Jackie Chan starts work on a sequel to his 2004 film New Police Story in November , Entitled Police Story 2013 the film will be directed by Little Big Soldier Director Ding Sheng. How the action will go we will have to wait and see. After Jackie said that after Chinese Zodiac ( release December) that he would retire from doing the big stunts anymore, It looks like we may have a more dramitc film on our hands. But then he can still fight.
Many of the great fight stars don't do massive stunts ,people get confused that when Jackie said he would not do the Stunt heavy work anymore ,you have to relaise that if just fought it would be the same as most of the other action stars around his age or ten years younger ( Jet Li / Donnie Yen ).
We look forward to this , here at K.I.T.G. we thought New Police Story was great , and Little Big Soldier was pure genius , we wait with baited breath.

So of course you want to know what's going on over the next few weeks , but first the sad news last month Karate Legend Joe Lewis passed away after battling Brain Cancer ,he had a tumor removed in 2011 and doctors believed they had removed it all but in May this year he fell ill again and passed away this August . We will be doing a retrospective of his life on site that will go live in about a week or so.
The Late Great Joe Lewis who passed away end of August
Also unfortunalty staying with the not so happy news is that Gordon Liu (SAN-TE) famous for his roles in the 36th Chamber of Shaolin and numerous Shaw Brothers classics as well as his role as the leader as the head of the Crazy 88's in Kill Bill is still in a bad way after his Stroke last year ,confined to a wheel chair ,he has cut himself of from the world and the only contact with the celebrity world are two of his closest friends who visit him of which one is Leung Kan Yan.
There is still hope that he may walk again after he lost movement in one side of his body ,and said he has shown improvement. We wish him well.
I hope all get to see him in his last film role ,in a Martial arts action film called ''Kill'em All'' ,still to be released look out for it, of note it also stars the Late Joe Lewis who made the film before he fell ill again.
