The Jackie Chan-starring Chinese historical epic 1911 will be released day-and-date in the U.S. and China thanks to Well Go USA, who have picked up the North American rights to the film — Chan’s 100th. The film tells the founding of the Republic of China:
“We are honored to be a part of 1911 on many levels, not only because of its historical significance but also because it’s Jackie’s 100th film,” Well Go president Doris Pfardrescher said. “Jackie Chan is an icon and it’s just thrilling for us to be able to bring this film to his North American fans on the same day and date as Asia’s theatrical release.”
Chan co-directed 1911 with Zhang Li.
