Seann William Scott and Jackie Chan are teaming for the buddy action comedy “Skiptrace” from Exclusive Media and Talent International Film Co.
The story follows Bennie Black (Jackie Chan), a Hong Kong detective who has been tracking the notorious crime boss Victor Wong for over a decade.
When Bennie’s young niece Bai (Fan Bingbing) gets into trouble with Wong’s crime syndicate, Bennie must track down the only man who can help him: a fast-talking American gambler Connor Watts (Seann William Scott).
Bennie races against the clock to bring Connor back to Hong Kong and the unlikely pair embark on a perilous adventure from the snowy mountains of Mongolia to the windswept dunes of the Gobi desert.
Jay Longino, Brian Gatewood, Alessandro Tanaka, David Posamentier and Geoff Moore all worked on the script, while Sam Fell (“Paranorman”) is slated to direct.
Chan and David Gerson will produce. Filming begins January 13th in China.
