Reports from Tracking Board confirm that Jackie Chan has agreed to re-team with Owen Wilson for Shanghai Dawn, reprising the role of Chon Wang that he first played in Shanghai Noon (2000) and Shanghai Knights (2003).
Not much information has been released about the movie but Wilson did have this to say: “We met with the writers and there’s talk about going to Egypt. This does seem like a Hope/Crosby thing. You can put the characters in all different situations and it works.”
There’s no director in place yet either, but the project is being overseen for MGM by original producer Jonathan Glickman.
