ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Action movie legend and superstar Jackie Chan turned out in Hollywood on Thursday (October 5) for the premiere of his latest movie 'The Foreigner." Directed by 'Casino Royale's' Martin Campbell, "The Foreigner" sees Chan take on a more dramatic role, one that is more reliant on his acting skills than his stunt abilities. "I want to be a real actor like Robert De Niro because the action star's life is very short," said Chan. "I'm not young anymore ... I hope the audience will see another side of jackie. I can not only fight, I also can act and I also can sing too," he joked. The London-set film sees Chan play a businessman with a secret past who sets out to avenge the death of his daughter after she is murdered in an act of terrorism. The film opens in the United States on Friday (October 13).
