East meets West in Chinese epic "Dragon Blade"

Jackie Chan will be starring alongside John Cusack and Adrien Brody in his next action film titled 'Dragon Blade.'

The movie will feature an East meets West theme in which Roman Soldiers are lost in ancient times in an epic battle between the Chinese and Roman soldiers who venture to China in 48 B.C.

Cusack will play Lucius, a Roman general who led a legion of 1,000 soldiers into Han Dynasty China. Brody will play Tiberius, who assassinated Rome's Consul Crassus and chased after Lucius with a force of 100,000 soldiers. Chan stars as the Commander of the Protectorate of the Western Regions, who teams up with Lucius to protect China's borders.

“I'm really excited to be in a movie with two of the most respected actors working today,” said Chan. “It gives me confidence that the decade we spent researching and developing the script has produced something of a world-class standard.”

The movie has finished shooting at Hengdian World Studios and will soon start shooting on location in the historic city of Dunhuang and the Gobi Desert, Chan said at the Shanghai International Film Festival.

"China is the future of world cinema," Cusack said. "Having an opportunity to work with such film talents as Jackie Chan, Huayi Brothers, Daniel Lee and Susanna Tsang is a great privilege. I grew up watching Jackie Chan films and stood in awe of his talent, energy and spirit. This will be a great adventure for me."

East meets West in Chinese epic "Dragon Blade," which sees Roman and Chinese forces unite to protect China from Emperor Tiberius.

Discussing the announcement at the Shanghai Film Festival, Jackie Chan said that he was "really excited to be in a movie with two of the most respected actors working today," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

“It is a dream to finally work with Jackie. Aside from my longtime appreciation for his many talents, he is a beacon of generosity, and an inspiration to me,” said Brody. “Dragon Blade is a tale of mythical proportions -- of good prevailing over evil -- and an opportunity for me to explore a character whose ambition challenges his honor."

 

Built on a budget of $65m, the most expensive Chinese-language film in history is to commence its location shoot in Silk Road stop Dunhuang City and within the Gobi, directed by Daniel Lee of historical epics "Three Kingdoms" and "White Vengeance."
