So much for retiring from action films and wanting to branch out into more dramatic roles.

Heat Vision is reporting that Jackie Chan is currently in the process of developing a new English-Language comedy in which he will star.

The untitled comedy, penned by Jay Longino based on an original idea by Chan, will follow a detective (Chan) who must track down an American gambler that has skipped out on his debt owed to a Macau casino syndicate. Settings for the film will include Hong Kong, Macau, Eastern Europe and mainland China.

Chan’s JC Group International and Beijing-based production and distribution company Talent International Media Group are teaming up to produce the project.

The action legend’s latest movie, ‘Chinese Zodiac,’ which he directed, wrote, produced and starred will be released in 2013.
