Jackie Chan (Dragon Blade) and Arnold Schwarzenegger (Maggie) will be appearing (emphasize on the word “appearing”) in Oleg Stepchenko’s Journey to China: The Iron Mask Mystery (aka Viy 2), an action adventure flick that’s being hailed as “Russia’s biggest-budget co-production ever”.

According to THR, the film is set in the 18th century and focuses on the adventures of English traveler Jonathan Green (Jason Flemyng), who is assigned to draw a map of Russia’s Far East. However, his travels eventually bring Green to China.

Journey to China: The Iron Mask Mystery is a sequel to 2014’s Viy, the highest grossing Russian film of all-time. The film hits theaters in 2017.

Updates: Watch the film’s trailer below. Keep in mind that it doesn’t feature Jackie Chan or Arnold Schwarzenegger (via SA).

    I’d take a big grain of salt with that… This reminds me of when Arnie and Sly were announced as stars of a Bollywood blockbuster, Kambakht Ishq. In the end Sly was there for mere seconds and Arnie had been replaced by a Brandon Routh cameo.
    VIY 2 is the sequel to VIY (obviously ^^), which was record-breaking in Russia when it came out, so it makes sense that they would go for international stars this time (the first one had Jason Flemyng & Charles Dance), but I can’t imagine the two of them having more than an extended cameo.
