Jackie Chan’s Candid Memoir 'Never Grow Up' to Hit Stands in November
Film producing countries across the globe might have witnessed the emergence of scores of movie stars over the years, but none of them would have lived a life as eventful and fascinating as Jackie Chan’s. The Hong Kong-based cinema legend has been actively working in movies since the late 1960s and boasts of over 150 titles to his credit. His diehard fans might claim to know a lot about the megastar, but there are a plethora of things which Chan may not have discussed with anyone. But the day is not far when we will have a book in our hand which allows us to know the superstar up close and personal.
According to reports, Jackie Chan is gearing up to share some personal and professional stories about his incredible life in an upcoming memoir titled “Never Grow Up”. Yes, one of the most popular action stars across the globe is set to unveil his memoir in the month of November.
The book will be published by Gallery Books. Revealing some details, the publishing house told The Associated Press on Thursday that “Never Grow Up” is a candid account of Chan’s life, which encapsulates everything from his early days with the China Drama Academy to a series of near-death experiences that the star has gone through on and off camera over the years.
Chan, who was last seen on STX’s Chinese co-production The Foreigner, will also open up about making films in Hong Kong and Hollywood. “Never Grow Up” sheds light on his imperfections as a family man also.
