Veteran Chinese actor Jackie Chan is going to receive a lifetime achievement Oscar.
The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has announced that the 62-year-old will join documentary maker1 Frederick Wiseman, British film editor Anne V. Coates and casting director Lynn Stalmaster as recipients2 of its 2016 Governors Awards.
Each will get an honorary Oscar statuette recognizing their lifetime contribution to film at a gala in Los Angeles in November.
Chan made his movie debut3 at the age of 8, and has acted, written and directed over 30 martial4 arts films.
He has yet to win an Oscar.
Chan himself is in Taipei as part of the filming for his latest effort called "Bleeding Steel," which is a sci-fi/action film.
In it, Chan plays a special force agent who has to protect a woman from a criminal organization.
Jackie Chan admits the role has forced him out of his comfort zone.
"Of course I am not very confident with science-fiction. I don't know much about it. Therefore I only make Jackie Chan-style movies. This is a sci-fi movie, and at the same time it's not a sci-fi movie. So this gives me more confidence. And the character is also a challenge. In the past few years, people may have noticed that I tried hard to change my image. I hope people know that I am not only an action movie actor. I am an actor."
