Martial arts legend JACKIE CHAN wants to be a dramatic actor, not just an action star - and STEVEN SPIELBERG is going to help him do it.
Chan, known worldwide for scores of Hong Kong-style martial arts films like MARVELLOUS FISTS and CRIME STORY, is set to begin shooting a film called TUXEDO - which Spielberg, the Oscar-winning director of films like SCHINDLER'S LIST (1993), will produce
. He says, "I don't like people always talking about Jackie Chan the action star. I want to be an actor. An actor has a life that goes on forever. " (NFA/WNWCYA)
