Although the martial arts legend is a beloved figure among Asian-Americans, some are slamming the upcoming film’s erasure of Vietnamese people.
Earlier this week, a trailer for STX Entertainment's forthcoming film The Foreigner starring Jackie Chan dropped online.
The action-thriller centers on a Vietnamese father who embarks on a mission of revenge after his daughter (Katie Leung) is killed in a terrorist bombing. It's a role much darker than any of the ones Chan previously played in his Hollywood career.
The movie is based on The Chinaman, a 1992 book by Stephen Leather.
