Those of you who follow Twitch and Blogging the Reel World are aware that Jackie Chan's next film will be an epic drama. This film will be titled Little Big Soldier. Besides, this film's teaser has just been released online.
First of all, the story goes like this according to Tood Brown over at Twitch:
It was the darkest of times in China, when ruthless warlords waged battles to satiate their endless aggression. Millions of lives perished, and those who survived had only two choices - kill or be killed.The battalions of warring states Liang and Wei collided in a bloodbath that lasted from dawn until dusk. Only two men were left standing - a FOOT SOLDIER from Liang (Jackie Chan) and the rival GENERAL from Wei (Wang Leehom). The Soldier survived because he is an expert in playing dead, with a device strapped on his body which protruded like an arrowhead for added realism.The Soldier captured the wounded General, hoping to use the enemy as his ticket to freedom - by handing the General to the Liang warlord, the Soldier could be honorably discharged and return home to his peaceful life. The young General, though taken captive, was condescending towards the Soldier. The two men were often at loggerheads during the long and winding journey.
Besides, this will be Jackie Chan's second epic drama after The Myth, which I saw in Grade 11. For all I know, Little Big Soldier will be in theatres in February 11, 2010 in Hong Kong. Besides, don't ask me if this film will be better than The Myth. All I can tell you is that the latter was complete piece of [unknown expletive], because the parts in the modern time was so useless and their presence made it too hard for the scriptwriters to develop the parts in the Ancient China.
