The end of an era is upon us after martial arts star Jackie Chan announced he will no longer make action movies.
The Hong Kong-born actor told audiences at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival that he has completed his last ever action movie – entitled Chinese Zodiac.
The 58-year-old said: “This is my last action film. I tell you, I’m not young any more. I’m really, really tired.
“And the world is too violent right now. It’s a dilemma – I like action but I don’t like violence.”
Chinese Zodiac is Chan’s 100th film. He started performing on screen in the 1960s and worked as a stuntman on the Bruce Lee films Fist of Fury and Enter the Dragon.
