Kung fu Star Jackie Chan has attended a press conference in Beijing for his latest film Skiptrace.

Directed by Renny Harlin, the film follows a Hong Kong detective, played by Chan, who tracks down a mouthy American gambler on the run from creditors.

The two unlikely partners then team up and embark on a wild journey through China's most scenic and exotic locations.

Die Hard 2 director Harlin, spoke highly of Jackie's performance.

"I thought that I knew everything about film making already, but working with Jackie, I'm learning so much every day. His way of doing things and improvising action and coming up with ideas, he's a comic genius which everybody knows. He's a comic genius and he will always come up with something that you add to the scene, so it's even more fun."

The film started shooting in August and is expected to hit the cinema in 2015.

As it was a rare public appearance since his son Jaycee Chan was arrested for drug abuse, Jackie Chan said that his career was not affected by the incident.

However he did plea to the media to not report speculation, which he said hurt Jaycee's mother.
