Hong Kong actor Jackie Chan poses during a promotional event for his film "Chinese Zodiac" in Beverly Hills, California October 16, 2013. Hong Kong martial arts film star Chan, 59, who declared last year at France's Cannes film festival that he was retiring from action films, now says that after more than a decade of contemplating quitting, he is going to let his body decide. As Chan starts to enter his twilight years he laments how Hollywood typecasting may force him to begin using a stunt double for his acrobatic scenes as he believes Hollywood studios would never cast him in dramatic roles.

Los Angeles: Actors Jackie Chan and Constance Wu have been roped in to lend their voice for the animation “Wish Dragons”.

Makers of the Chinese co-production are also in talks with John Cho and Jimmy O for the Sony Pictures project, reported hollywoodreporter.com.

“Wish Dragon” is a contemporary retelling of the classic genie-in-a-bottle tale from “One Thousand and One Nights”.

Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Jimmy Wong and Bobby Lee will also lend their voice for different characters. The project will be directed by Chris Appelhans.
