Jared Hess To Direct Shanghai Dawn
If you hadn’t heard there is going to be a third instalment in the Shanghai film series called Shanghai Dawn. The film will see the return of Jackie Chan as Chon Wang and Owen Wilson as Roy O’Bannon their original characters from the first two films.
It’s been 13 year since the last film Shanghai Knights was released, but when you consider the fact that Zoolander got a sequel 15 years after the first one this comes as no surprise. Now it has been announced that the film has final got a director in Jared Hess who directed Napoleon Dynamite back in 2004. As it stands no plot details have been revealed. However what we do know is that original writers of the first two films Miles Millar and Alfred Gough have come up with the story, but Theodore Riley and Aaron Buchsbaum will be the ones to write the actual script.
We can’t really say that people are going to be hyped for the film, because it has been so long since the last one was on the big screen. It’s doesn’t seem, at least right now, like it’s going to be the type of film to pull in a massive audience. Fans of the original films will probably go and watch and we never know it could actually be really good.
No release date has been set just yet, but now that it has a director it’s only a matter of time. So the question is are you interested, are you not, or do you just not even remember the films at all?
