Exclusive Media Boards Jackie Chan-Bingbing Fan Comedy

'Skiptrace' sales starting at Cannes

In a pre-Cannes deal, Exclusive Media has come on board to produce and co-finance Sam Fell’s action comedy “Skiptrace,” starring Jackie Chan and Bingbing Fan.

‘Skiptrace” will be produced as a Sino co-production by Exclusive Media and China’s Talent Intl., which will also co-finance the film. Chan and David Gerson are producing. Cyrte Investments’ Charlie Coker, who brought the project in, will exec producer with Cyrte.

Exclusive Media is handling international rights and will present the film to buyers at the  Cannes Film Market this month. Exclusive Media’s Damien Saccani will oversee production.

‘Skiptrace” is based on Chan’s original idea and written by Jay Longino with the Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka co-writing. Story follows a Hong Kong detective (Chan) tracking down a mouthy American gambler on the run from his creditors. The pair form an unlikely partnership to take down Hong Kong’s most notorious criminal.

Chan has starred in over 150 films including the “Rush Hour” trilogy, “Shanghai Noon” and “Shanghai Knights.” Fan’s credits include Chen Kaige’s “Sacrifice” and Wang Xiaoshuai’s “Chongqing Blues” and will next be seen as Blink in Bryan Singer’s “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”

Fell directed “Paranorman” and “Flushed Away.”

Chan, Fan, Talent Intl., Longino and  Gerson are repped by WME. Chan is also represented by Bloom Hergott’s Jake Bloom & Patrick Knapp and Fan by Timothy Mou. Fell is represented by UTA and Newhouse Porter Hubbard.  Gerson is also repped by John Sloss. Longino is also represented by Bernie Cahill of ROAR and Todd Rubenstein of Morris Yorn.
