Martial arts star Jackie Chan has been given the all-clear to shoot his new movie THE MYTH in mythical Hampi in India.

No one has ever been allowed to film in the 14th century town, which is featured on the World Heritage in Danger List, but Indian authorities have deemed Chan's new film worthy of a pass.

Chan will also be allowed to film some scenes in the sacred Virupaksha Temple.

The film marks Chan's first project shot in India.
