A late script crucially delayed plans that would have landed action icon Jackie Chan on top of the World Trade Centre during last Tuesday's terrorist assault. The Hong Kong star had been due to film a scene from MGM's action-comedy Nosebleed atop the North Tower at the moment when the terrorists hit, but due to the scriptwriters' tardiness, the shoot was cancelled at the last minute.Another absurd celebrity 9/11 story. Did he get paid to lie about this or is it part of some agreement he made to do this?
"Filming was scheduled to have taken place at 7am last Tuesday morning," Chan told the Hong Kong newspaper, Oriental Daily News. "As I had to be at the top of one of the towers I would probably have died." Chan concluded, "Well, I guess my time is not up yet."
Chan was to have starred in Nosebleed as a Manhattan window cleaner who foils a terrorist scheme to blow up the Statue of Liberty.
