So, make sure you tune into "The Myth" this Friday, February 9th at 9 p.m. only on Star Movies.

Taking place during two points of time with parallel stories, THE MYTH follows archeologist Jack Chan (Jackie Chan). Jack begins having dreams of himself reincarnated as Meng-Yi, a Qin Dynasty General fighting a desperate war against rebels, who must escort the Emperor's concubine Ok-Soo back to the Qin capital city. As the two fall in love, Meng Yi struggles with his feelings for Ok-Soo (Hee-seon Kim) and his loyalty to the emperor. Meanwhile, in the present, Jack, along with his scientist friend William (Tony Leung), looks to uncover the secrets of his dreams in a tomb in India, where they find a gravity defying gemstone and an ancient sword - two clues to unlock the mysteries of The Myth.


Due to Mallika Sherawat's racy image in Bollywood, rumors circulated that she landed the role over many other Indian actresses (Aishwarya Rai, Lara Dutta, Priyanka Chopra) because she was willing to do full frontal nudity in this film. When these rumors were spread, Stanley Tong and Jackie Chan held a special press conference in India to say that they picked Mallika over many others because of her great charm and genuine acting talent, and that the film didn't even have a kissing scene, let alone full frontal nudity.

Aishwarya Rai was the original choice to play the Indian princess but she was on tour at the time and her busy schedule didn't allow her to take the role.

Jackie Chan was stabbed in the arm while filming a stunt.

Jackie Chan fell off a horse and couldn't move his legs for the rest have the day. After a few days he was reported doing fine again.
