    Vanguard (2019)

    Just as I suspected. The official release date is confirmed as January 25 2020. This is according to the film's official Weibo account which should be safe from inaccuracies.

    According to Jackie Chan France, the movie My Mercenary Career will now co star Jackie Chan where before he was just producing it. The basic synopsis of the movie seems like an amalgamation of Vanguard and Project X. Jackie Chan France is quite reliable but still take this with a grain of salt. I've heard from "official" sources that Vanguard comes out in 2021 but early 2020 seems like a better bet to me.

    I liked that the trailer showed a heavier focus on firepower and it appears that the comedy might be more about reactions to the situations than the driving force of the movie.

    Vanguard (2019)

    I found this synopsis on the film catalogue website. I'm not sure how accurate it is but it matches the film's locations at least. Jackie Chan stars as Tang Huanting, the head of an International security agency known as Vanguard. Vanguard is hired when an accountant, Qin Guoli learns of his friend’s terrorist ties and leaks the information to the US government. In a subsequent bombing, Qin’s friend dies. Tang discovers there was a sole survivor of the bombing; Omar, the son of the man Qin betrayed. Omar vows to avenge his family by attacking the people responsible for their deaths. He hires a fearsome group of mercenaries known as the Arctic Wolves to hunt down Qin and the only thing standing in their way is Vanguard. In London the Arctic Wolves attempt to kidnap Qin but their plans are foiled when Vanguard helps Qin escape. Qin still fears for his family and instructs Vanguard to protect his estranged daughter, Fareeda. Fareeda is on expedition in Africa and is ambushed and held captive with a Vanguard operative, Lei Zhenyu. A high octane chase ensues, from Africa to the Emirates. Omar captures Qin and hauls him to his headquarters in Dubai. Omar is intent on attacking a US aircraft carrier and needs Qin’s intel to find his dead father’s hidden resources to finish the job. Tang and the Vanguard team are the last hope to stop Omar.
  5. Composer Nathan Furst, son of late actor Stephen Furst, is composing the music for Project X. He has done the music for all of Scott Waugh's previous movies. He has also composed the music for Lake Placid 2 and 3, Bionicle: Mask of Light and it's two sequels, a few of the Roxy Hunter films, Baby Huey's Great Easter Adventure, some killer shark films, and a killer snake movie called Copperhead.

    "Summing up his latest movie in three words, Chan said "Action. Comedy. Explosion." I'm not so sure if it is a good idea to take this plot and make a comedy out of It. Maybe it is. It will definitely succeed financially though. There is also going to be car chases in Dubai. Who didn't see that coming?

    Vanguard (2019)

    The movie will be released in China for the New Year festivities in 2021. It is said to be a globetrotting adventure in the style of Mission impossible. Some of the movie will also take place in Africa. Jackie's jet ski accident did indeed come from the filming of Vanguard apparently.

    Vanguard (2019)

    Barret Coates plays Black Bear, Temur Mamisashvili plays Chameleon, and Joseph Fiorello plays Red Wolf according to IMDB. Could these characters be members of Arctic Wolf?

    The film will also feature Jackson Lou, Zhu Zhengting, and Ai Lun. The movie will be shot around and in downtown Dubai, City Walk, and in some other prominent and residential areas.

    Vanguard (2019)

    That's not what I'm trying to say. I'm just saying it sounds like they are basically trying to make the same kind of film as Kung Fu Yoga to replicate its success whether it's an actual sequel or not. We'll just have to wait and see what happens. The end result could be something unexpected.

    Vanguard (2019)

    Jackie is going to be filming Vanguard in Dubai next week. Jackie, Stanley Tong, Miya Muqi, Dubai. Sound familiar? This doesn't sound too promising but I could be wrong. After all, this is a "thriller." However, Kung Fu Yoga was a big success so what is there to stop them from basically making the same movie albeit slightly different with the same people?

    Yeah, he talked about the jet ski incident on Good Morning America promoting his memoir and went into more detail on it during his live book signing.

    Vanguard (2019)

    This movie has apparently been filming since at least early January if not even earlier. Costar Yang Yang is filming some scenes in London since filming wrapped in Taiwan. I still am unsure about one thing though. Is Jackie's near drowning from falling off of a jet ski from filming this movie or is it from reshoots of Project Extraction?
