Jackie Chan and Sylvester Stallone Are Finally Teaming Up For an Epic Action Movie

Jackie Chan and Sylvester Stallone, two of the biggest international movie icons, are teaming up for an epic action-packed movie.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, it looks like the planned movie, titled “Ex-Baghdad”, has had been green lit to start production. The $80 million movie project, believed to be among the costliest Chinese productions after “Asura’s” $100 million budget, will be directed by “Need for Speed” filmmaker Scott Waugh.

The report also said that apart from Jackie Chan, the movie will be produced by Talent International, Esmond Ren, Hans Canosa, and Joe Tam.

The upcoming movie which will be released worldwide and is targeting international audience centers around the story of two ex-special forces soldiers which will be portrayed by Chan and Stallone. The two are tasked to help a group of civilians pass through Baghdad’s “Highway of Death” and escort them safely to the “Green Zone”.

For die-hard Jackie Chan and Sylvester Stallone fans out there, this looks like something to look out for.
