Jackie Chan's Bleeding Steel to be made in NSW
Legendary movie action hero Jackie Chan will star in and executive produce his next blockbuster film Bleeding Steel in New South Wales, the first film announced under the NSW Government’s $20 million Made in NSW fund.
This is the first time Jackie Chan has filmed in Australia for almost 20 years.
Bleeding Steel was secured for NSW through the $20 million Made in NSW fund, which provides incentives to attract international film and high-end Australian television drama production to NSW.
The production will deliver more than $20 million into the local economy and support local film industry professionals, including stunt, safety and rigging crews, by providing them with the opportunity to work on a film alongside one of the world’s leading action heroes.
Bleeding Steel is the biggest budget Chinese film to ever shoot in Australia and will cast 40 NSW actors and dozens of local extras as well as create 200 production jobs.
Locally trained stuntwoman Maria Tran from western Sydney has also been selected to work on an attachment as part of the stunt team.”
Mr Chan will discuss his work and iconic films at an In Conversation event on 6 August at the Sydney Opera House, in association with Screen NSW.
