The release of Jackie Chan’s latest film ‘Vanguard’, filmed partially in Dubai, has been pushed back due to the deadly coronavirus breakout in China.
All worldwide releases of the film have been postponed, including the UAE. The film was initially set to release locally on Thursday. But it has been pulled from schedules in China and abroad.
Studios behind seven upcoming Chinese releases, originally meant to screen during the lucrative Lunar New Year holiday, made the decision to delay their films to prevent the possible spread of the coronavirus in cinema halls.
The virus, which originated in Wuhan, has so far killed 80 people, as per reports.
Chan was in Dubai in March of last year to film ‘Vanguard’. A new date of release for the film has not been set.
