Jackie Chan is finally back on the big screen and is kicking more arse than ever in the first trailer for The Foreigner.
The famous martial artist, actor and director is starring alongside former James Bond himself Pierce Brosnan in the revenge thriller that is directed by Casino Royale‘s Martin Campbell.
Chan plays Quan, a humble London businessman whose buried past comes back to haunt him when his teenage daughter is killed in a politically motivated terrorist act.
Whilst relentlessly searching for the Irish radical terrorists, our protagonist Quan is forced into a conflict with Brosnan’s British government official whose own past may hold clues to the identities of the killers.
David Marconi wrote the script based on Stephen Leather’s novel The Chinaman.
We can’t wait to see Chan back in action.
