Jackie Chan

I'm NOT Quitting Action Flicks After All

7/17/2012 11:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



The mourning period is officially over -- Jackie Chan assures TMZ he is DEFINITELY not quitting action films, despite telling the press a few weeks ago he was axing his action slate to become "the Asian Robert De Niro."

We remember it like it was yesterday ... but in fact it was in May ... Jackie was promoting his new film -- "Chinese Zodiac" -- when he told reporters "This will be my last action movie."

After two months of imagining a world without Jackie beating people up ... some good news finally emerged last night when TMZ caught up with the martial-arts God outside fancy-schmancy Bouchon in Beverly Hills.

We asked Jackie point-blank about his self-proclaimed retirement and he told us, "Nooooooooo. I still do action movie."

So rest easy folks, there's still hope for "Rush Hour: 20."

I remember the good old Jackie movies and the new ones seem to suck so I think he should Retire and let people remember his old movies

The Asian De Niro? Yes, Jackie, we're all anxious to see a subtitled movie called "Rickshaw Puller" or "Anawyze Dis".

Gotta love a guy who does his own dangerous stunts on movies, like Jacki Chan...and Tom Cruise.
Makes the movie feel a lot more realistic...'cause it *is* real :D

I'm sure Chris Tucker's career is breathing a sigh of relief.

Aw I think he is funny, there was a movie I saw him in (maybe with Owen Wilson?) where they traveled back in time to the Old West. I enjoyed it.

Jackie, the closest I ever came to seeing one of your movies is when I walked by one of them at Blockbuster Video. Please move to Greenland and stay retired.
