Jet Li returns to Chinese film

Jet Li is returning to Chinese film with a reportedly non-kung fu movie after three Hollywood productions, a publicist said yesterday.
Li is due to start shooting the movie - tentatively called "Ocean Paradise" in Chinese - Edko Film publicist Zhang Hongyan said in a phone interview yesterday. The film, due to be released next year, will be directed by a newcomer, Zhang said, declining to give further detail before the official announcement at a news conference in Beijing. Hong Kong-based Edko Film is the Chinese distributor for the movie.
The Chengdu Shangbao newspaper reported yesterday that Li will not fight in the movie, but Zhang declined to confirm the report, only saying, "It's a movie that's very different from his previous movies."
Li's last three films were all American productions.
