3 April 2013 / 4 years 1 month ago

Despite the 'gold rush' for films in China, Jet Li says he is in no hurry to release a new movie -- he'll only pick films he finds 'fun' to do.With Lost in Thailand (人再囧途之泰囧) and Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons (西游‘¢é™é­”篇) grossing more than 1 billion RMB each, many stars are eager to release new movies to make a name for themselves. According to a report on website JayneStars, Jet Li (李连杰) is enjoying his relaxed lifestyle and says he will not dive into projects purely for financial gain.Although his new film, Badges of Fury (不二神探) will be released in June 2013, Jet has no immediate plans to film another new movie after that. He says, “many people have invited me to film movies. This year, I rejected 3 film offers. Let’s wait a little, until I feel like it. If it’s fun, I’ll do it".In the meantime, Jet is actively involved in other endeavours, like his international disaster relief organisation The One Foundation, as well as his mission to promote taiji to a wider global audience through his company Taiji Zen.
