Most filmgoers in the world would agree that Hong Kong actor Jackie Chan is multi-talented. The Korea Herald reported that he knows how to sing, direct and write film scripts on top of being a stunt performer.His latest film, “Chinese Zodiac,‘ will convince anyone with doubts about Chan’s abilities. It’s an action film about looted Chinese artifacts, written, co-produced, directed by and starring Chan, which has grossed over $135 million at the Chinese box office since last year. “It took me seven years to make this film,‘ said Chan during a press conference in Seoul on Monday, promoting the film ahead of its Korean release. “I’ve heard many people saying, ‘˜Hey, Jackie Chan’s now old. We can’t expect him to star in action movies anymore.’ Well, I kept telling myself, ‘˜just wait and see until I finish this movie.’‘
