6 Nov – Action superstar Jackie Chan has reportedly joined the upcoming Oleg Stepchenko movie, "Viy-2".
As reported on Screen Rant, the actor will star alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger and original star Jason Flemyng, the latter reprising his role as the 18th century English explorer and cartographer Jonathan Green.
While the original film was set around Western Europe, the sequel revolves around Green's long journey to the Russian Far East that will eventually lead him to China.
The movie is now in post-production, and reportedly has been filmed in China. It will be released early next year.
"Viy-2" is a sequel to the original 2014 Russian box office hit (internationally known as "Forbidden Empire"), which was adapted from Russian writer Nikolai Gogol.
