Jackie Chan and Sean William Scott To Make Action Flick

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Sean William Scott take on a role in an action movie. It’s been even longer since we saw Jackie Chan in a role that was entertaining to watch; Rush Hour 3 (2007) was OK but it was the same old goofy comedy that can only be expected with Chris Tucker on the screen, and the horrific re-make of The Karate Kid (1984) with Chan as the master instructor can hardly be considered entertainment. But now Chan and Scott are returning to the big screen in an upcoming action flick called Skiptrace from director Sam Fell. The idea for a story about a Chinese policeman having to team up with a witty, think-with-your-mouth American to save his niece came from Chan, but unfortunately bares an all too familiar resemblance to the Rush Hour movies. I know you’re getting old Jackie, but that doesn’t mean you have to start down the re-make road! We’ll see how this one turns out. Scott has done a decent job with action movies in the past, mostly providing comic-relief to the serious bad-ass roles of his co-stars like Dwayne (The Rock) Johnson and Yun-Fat Chow, but his style of comedy fit in so perfectly with the feel of the 1990s, it may be hard for audiences to accept him as the funny guy in a modern flick. Like I said, we’ll see what happens.
