Jackie Chan and film crew were rescued during a “massive” mudslide while filming Project X.
The 64-year-old actor reveals in his blog that his film crew experienced “scary” moments as a river mudslide hit the film crew in China.
“Today, we started shooting on location. The weather suddenly changed and our crew were caught in a massive mudslide!” wrote Chan in his blog.
The actor said the weather cuddly turned for the worse when heavy rain caused a huge mudslide pushing trucks and tents down a fast flowing river of mud. Chan posted several photos of the mudslide and was grateful when rescuers had come to their rescue to tow the trucks to safety.
“A few of our production trucks were stuck in the river of rushing mud. Many of the crew became frightened because it was so sudden. Luckily, some large hook trucks came to our rescue and helped tow our production trucks to safety,” wrote Chan.
The upcoming feature film Project X, also stars actor John Cena, who reportedly replaced Sylvester Stallone in the movie. The movie is directed by Scott Waugh from Need for Speed and is set to be released next year.
