Jackie Chan is currently writing a musical based on his own life, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The script is based on his memoir “I am Jackie Chan: My Life in Action,” a best-seller that chronicled his rise to stardom and the lives of his parents.
During a recent press conference, Chan described the musical. Here’s how the Hollywood Reporter described it:
Chan said the musical will be told through his voice as narrator of his life, focusing on his early youth, his time spent performing acrobatics with the children’s performance group the Seven Little Fortunes and his quest to step out from behind the shadow of the iconic Bruce Lee.
Chan noted that he’s currently in the process of looking for a director for the musical. Do you think his life would make a compelling theatre show?
