Jackie Chan planning musical based on his memoir

Get ready for "Jackie Chan: The Musical."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the martial arts movie star is working on a musical stage adaptation of his memoir "I Am Jackie Chan: My Life in Action."

"We are looking for a director for the musical right now," the publication reported he said during a press conference Tuesday at the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in New York City. "It's all very exciting."

Chan was in the Big Apple as part of a trek that included him being awarded a lifetime achievement award from the New York Asian Film Festival. The festival also screened his new film "Chinese Zodiac."

The actor said the planned musical would focus on his earlier days, when as a youth he performed with a children's acrobatic group in China. The "Rush Hour" star also said he expects to write a sequel to his autobiography, which was first published in 1998.
