Action legend Jackie Chan's new film "CZ12" will be released into European and North American cinemas in summer next year.

Chan's film tells the story of a spy searching for twelve bronze statues that European forces stole from Beijing's Old Summer Palace during the mid-1800s.

The action star wrote, directed, produced and starred in the film, which he says will be his final hard-core action role.

Director of distribution Ramy Choi has told The Hollywood Reporter that the film would open on "a few hundred screens" in either the spring or summer of next year.

"CZ12" has topped box-office lists in several Asian countries.

The movie, which also stars Oliver Platt and Liao Fan, has opened in China, Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand.

Jackie Chan currently has several new projects in the works, including a new movie with his "Rush Hour" co-star Chris Tucker.
