Jackie Chan plans to build namesake theme park in Beijing
Action superstar Jackie Chan says he plans to build a theme park called 'JC World' in the city's Yizhuang district
Jackie Chan, 59, said the park will be about three-quarters of a square mile in size and will feature five sections, each with a different theme, offering visitors a variety of cultural experiences, said the Hollywood Reporter.
"I want to exhibit all my stuff. They may not all be worth a lot of money, but they may have a story behind them," Chan said. The park will exhibit items from the personal collection of artifacts he has amassed over the course of his four-decade career, such as special furniture, antique houses and jewelry.
"I was very poor when I was a child, so when I had money later on, I bought all sorts of things and went around the world collecting them," he added. Chan said the park will have no entrance fee, but some attractions will be ticketed.
"Sixty per cent of the park will be free, 40 per cent will be ticketed, with the money used to maintain the antique buildings. I am not short on money," he said.
