Word has it that Renny Harlin, the man behind the camera for this year’s The Legend of Hercules, is in talks to direct Skiptrace. Sam Fell (ParaNorman) was previously set to make his live-action debut on the film, but has exited the picture. The English language action-comedy stems from an original idea from star Jackie Chan, and centers on a good cop (Chan) whose niece (Fan Bingbing) runs afoul of a criminal syndicate, and catches the unwanted attention of its boss. The cop, who has been after the head honcho for over a decade, must track down the one man who can help save his niece: a fast-talking American gambler (Seann William Scott) who he brings to Hong Kong. Production is scheduled to begin this August. Hit the jump for full details.
