Jackie Chan Returns to CAA

Jackie Chan has signed with CAA for representation.

Chan had previously been with the agency for several years before leaving briefly to follow his agent to WME. After news broke last week of Chan and his agent, Philip Button, leaving WME, insiders suggested it was only a matter of time before the two returned to CAA.

Button is now with STX, but will serve as Chan’s manager.

The agency will also rep Chan’s production company SR Media Corporation, through their Century City and Beijing offices.

CAA will focus on packaging, arranging financing for and selling film projects on behalf of the company, with a focus on U.S.-China co-productions. SR Media just co-produced and financed the Daniel Lee-directed “Dragon Blade.” The period action film stars Chan, John Cusack and Adrien Brody, and it grossed north of $120 million, just in China.

Chan is about to star filming the STX pic “The Foreigner” with Martin Campbell directing the film about a man seeking revenge on the IRA after his family is kidnapped.

He also is returning to voice the character of Monkey in DreamWork Animation’s “Kung Fu Panda 3.” He is also repped by Bloom Hergott Diemer Rosenthal Laviolette Feldman Schenkman & Goodman.
