Moviegoers and film industry may feel lost or, on the other way around, feel glad as Chinese action star Jackie Chan said Monday he expects to stop starring in action films in five years, but will remain busy by producing and directing. The star was in Malaysia to promote "The Myth," while confirming he wanted to produce action films, make small-budget movies and documentaries and help train young directors and stunt actors.

"I don't think I'll retire," he said. "Maybe from the screen, but (not) behind the screen." Further Chan said he will return with a kung fu project to be shot late next year or early 2007, probably with the makers of the "Rush Hour" action-comedy series, which has marked his biggest international success so far.
