Chan to make Chinese earthquake film

May 29, 2008

LONDON (UPI) -- Hong Kong film star Jackie Chan said he is discussing with directors and screenwriters the idea of making a movie about this month's earthquake in China.

Chan told the BBC the proceeds of the project would go to survivors of the natural disaster, which has reportedly left more than 65,000 dead.

"I want to make the movie about the earthquake because there's so many touching stories," Chan told the BBC. "Twenty channels report a different story and every story I see just makes me cry. ... I believe there are so many touching stories, so we're going to have a big meeting to see what happens. I want, through the movie, to show the whole world, I really want to salute the whole army of China, really."

Chan said he has donated $1.4 million to help victims in the Sichuan province. He said about 100 other Asian artists plan to participate in charity events in Hong Kong and Chengdu, Sichuan's capital, next month.
