Arnold Schwarzenegger and Jackie Chan are making a Russian/Chinese produced movie together: Journey to China: The Mystery of Iron Mask



This picture looks absolutely ridiculous, but isn't that what is expected when it comes to a Chinese/Russian produced film starring these two action heavyweights?

My buddy tells me they are going to have edit that skull out if they want it to be released in China. Supposedly in China they have rules on not showing skulls or any kind of body horror if they can be related to superstition.

Oleg Stepchenko, a Russian journeyman whose credits include the horrendously "Jacked$," is the director of this film.The film is set for release in the winter of 2017 in Russia. No current U.S. release date is confirmed, but you can rest assured, given the stars at the helm and the $48M budget, that we will likely be able to see this film. That is if you want to actually see it.

IMDB has the synopsis going like this:

The English traveler Jonathan Green receives from Peter the Great an order to map the Russian Far East. Once again he sets out for a long journey full of incredible adventures that will eventually lead him to China. The cartographer will unexpectedly face a lot of breathtaking discoveries, encounter bizarre creatures, meet with Chinese princesses, and confront deadly martial arts masters and even the king of all dragons - the Dragon King. What could be more dangerous than meeting eye to eye with Viy, except doing it again? What would be stronger this time - a staunch skepticism of the scientist or the old black magic that has seized power of Eastern lands?
