Jackie Chan is writing a musical based on his life.
Speaking to reporters at a press conference in New York City yesterday (11.06.13), he said: "We are looking for a director for the musical right now."
The 59-year-old star - whose Hollywood credits include the 'Rush Hour' series - will document his life from his early years in Hong Kong to his time in youth acrobatic group Seven Little Fortunes, as well as his battle to step out of the shadow of martial arts legend Bruce Lee.
He said at the time: "I love 'The Sound of Music'. When I was young, I didn't know English and I saw the whole movie."
The iconic star is currently being honored for his film work in both Hollywood and his native Hong Kong.
Last week, the actor - like many top stars before him - had his hand and foot prints imprinted outside Los Angeles' TCL Chinese Theatre. Jackie first took part in the prestigious ceremony in 1997 but his cement plaque has since mysteriously disappeared.
The 'Chinese Zodiac' star also received a lifetime achievement award at the New York Asian Film Festival yesterday.
