Chan's Movie Inspiration At World Firefighters Games
Action man Jackie Chan thanked firefighters yesterday (03MAY05) at the launch of the ninth WORLD FIREFIGHTERS GAMES in his native Hong Kong, for inspiring him to make a movie about their heroic deeds.
The RUSH HOUR star hates being branded a hero, because he believes firefighters are more worthy of the title.
And the firefighters' strength, determination and teamwork at the event - in which firefighters compete in a range of sports - persuaded him to fulfil his dream of making a film about their brave actions.
He says, "A lot of people call me a hero. Well, (firefighters) are real heroes; they are nameless heroes.
"I have had the script for a firefighter movie for 20 years. It is a dream of mine to make this film; if I do not make it, I will regret it."04/05/2005 09:23
