Jared Hess To Helm “Shanghai Dawn”

“Napoleon Dynamite” director Jared Hess has been brought in to direct “Shanghai Dawn,” the third film in the “Shanghai Noon” action-comedy series at MGM and Spyglass Entertainment.

Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson are set to reprise their roles of Chon Wang and Roy O’Bannon from the two previous outings in 2000 and 2003.

Talk of a third film in the series came up during the release of the second movie, the title “Shanghai Dawn” was even floated back then, but the project never materialised until recently.

Gough & Millar wrote the story for Shanghai Dawn, with Theodore Riley and Aaron Buchsbaum penning the script.
