Jackie Chan's 100th movie, "1911", an all-star tribute film to the 100th anniversary of the 1911 Revolution, will hit Chinese theaters September 26, Sohu.com reports.
The film, which Chan directed, produced and acts in, is an artistic chronicle of the monumental revolution, known in China as the Xinhai Revolution, that began in 1911 and eventually brought an end to China's last feudal dynasty.
Chan, who describes the film as a combination of history, action, war and romance, has brought together 70-plus celebrities for the cast. Among them are Li Bingbing, Winston Chao, Joan Chen, Ning Jing, Yu Shaoqun, as well as Chan's actor-singer son, Jaycee.
Distributor Well Go USA has purchased the film's North American rights, and aims to give it a day-and-date release in the United States, according to "The Hollywood Reporter".
