Jackie Chan attended the Beijing International Film Festival with Jay Chou earlier this week, and praised the latter directing abilities.
Mingpao reported that Chan even pointed out that his son Jaycee Chan had been disappointing.
Thus, he said that he would pass on the kung fu film mantle to Chou.
Speaking at the event, Chou also revealed that he went into directing because he wanted to control others.
When asked why he did not ask Jackie Chan to perform in his film, Chou respectfully said that he absolutely did not dare to control him.
