Jackie Chan's latest Epic, "1911," has been selected as a special opening film of the 24th Tokyo International Film Festival.

The Tokyo Film Festival usually only selects one film to open the festival, and had already announced 'The Three Musketeers'. However the festival wanted to mark Chan's 100th Film in a 'special' way and so chose 1911 as a second.

Chan also codirected the film with reknowned director Zhang Li. The movie is a tribute to the 100th anniversary of the monumental Xinhai Revolution that started in 1911 and ultimately brought an end to China's last feudal dynasty.

The movie also stars Jaycee Chan, Winston Chao, Li Bingbing and has over 70 celebrities appearing in cameos throughout the movie.

Jackie Chan has already agreed to attend the Tokyo Film Festival opening ceremony which takes place on October 22.
