Legendary actor Jackie Chan has been roped in to star in director Joe Carnahans upcoming action film "Five Against A Bullet" as one of the bodyguards.
Lorenzo di Bonaventura is producing the project though his Di Bonventura Pictures banner.
The film is set in a small Mexican town under attack by the drug cartel. The story centres on five world-weary bodyguards who are signed on to protect a Mexican politician after his father is murdered by a cartel, ahead of an election, reports variety.com.
Bruce Willis was attached several years ago to star in "Five Against A Bullet" but is no longer on the project. Carnahan is currently attached only as the writer.
Chan, who has been acting in films since late 1960s, has appeared in more than 150 films. Chan's upcoming movies include "Railroad Tigers", "Bleeding Steel" and "The Foreigner".
