HONG KONG: Renny Harlin is set to direct action comedy Skiptrace, starring Jackie Chan and Seann William Scott. The Chinese action star will play a Hong Kong detective, who teams up with a fast-talking American Seann on the run from the Mob. The unlikely duo must join forces to save the cop’s niece (Fan Bingbing), when she gets into trouble with a crime lord. Bloom’s president Alex Walton told Screen Daily: ‘Jackie Chan’s international presence is unparalleled, and we’re thrilled that Renny Harlin has come on board to direct this exhilarating and hilarious project.–Btg
