As the movie is still in the developmental stage, it is difficult to tell who exactly will star in the movie, if the actors from the previous movie will make an appearance, or it will have a totally new cast. But it might be safe to assume, Jackie Chan will most likely star in this movie since he is kind of the main character in the film series.
