Shooting starting on Jan. 13

In a pre-American Film Market move, Seann William Scott is teaming up with Jackie Chan and Fan Bingbing in action-comedy “Skiptrace.”

Exclusive Media is selling international markets at AFM. Sam Fell will begin shooting on Jan. 13.

Exclusive Media and China-based Talent International are co-producing and co-financing. Chan is producing with David Gerson; Dasym Investment Strategies will exec produce along with Dasym’s Charlie Coker.

Based on Chan’s original idea, the script is written by Jay Longino and co-written by Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka, and David Posamentier and Geoff Moore.

Chan will portray a Hong Kong detective who has been tracking a crime boss for over a decade, and Bingbing will portray his niece, who gets into trouble with the syndicate. Scott will portray a fast-talking American gambler who helps Chan’s character.

Scott is repped by ICM Partners and the law firm Sloane, Weber, Offer, and Dern.
