Ain't It Cool News reports that the crew of Shanghai Knights has been spotted filming in London. According to their report, Jackie and the rest will be in England for only a short time. They are filming at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich. Shanghai Knights is due out at the end of 2002.
Not really news, but it's important:

The official Tuxedo web site has been updated a bit. Click here to visit. The Tuxedo is scheduled to be released on October 11, 2002.
Great news! The Kids Club logo and link has been put up on Jackie's official site!!!! Also at www.jackiechan.com you can read the latest updates to Jackie's diary. There are even new pictures to look at!
According to Variety Jackie will be starring in a remake of the old favorite film "Around the World in 80 Days." The original starred David Niven. According to Variety the script will be rewritten and "the new version will focus on Passepartout (Chan), who after stealing a valuable jade Buddha, seeks refuge with London gentleman inventor Phileas Fogg." Should be fun.
Jackie is still busy filming Shanghai Knights. After wrapping up filming in Prague, Jackie heads to England and then to Canada for additional location shots.

One of the goals of The Jackie Chan Fan Club for Kids is to increase children's knowledge of Chinese culture. In that spirit, a wonderful story has been added to the web site. It is a Chinese tale which was illustrated by a group of second graders from Texas. Club president Katharine Schroeder worked with Texas teacher (and Jackie Chan fan) Sue Clayton to produce this beautifully illustrated story. Click here to read The Tale of the Trusty Tiger.
