Jackie Chan and Jet Li have been invited to participate in Pamanca the Movie, an upcoming film by local production house Rafindo Galesong.
Executive producer Muhammad Basir said scripts for both actors had been sent, adding that they were being offered supporting roles in the film, according to tempo.co.
“If it’s about payment, of course we will not be able to meet their standards. Hopefully, they will agree to take part in this film in order to help improve [our] film industry,” Muhammad said.
Pamanca the Movie is an epic historical film set in the 1800s and focusing on pamanca, a traditional form of martial arts from South Sulawesi province, that involves silat martial art movements and pain resistance skills. Antara news agency reported that the movie was scheduled to be shot at four different places in the province, including the capital city of Makassar, Bulukumba and Bone regencies and the city of Parepare.
The movie's preproduction is set to kick off in Makassar on March 11. (mas/kes)
