Kung Fu megastar Jackie Chan's "Police Story" series is well known amongst his fans.

According to a report from the Chengdu Business Daily, the new sequel "Police Story 2013" (working title) is set to begin filming on November 15 in Beijing.

Jackie Chan will reprise the lead role, while actor Huang Bo from the mainland is also on board.

Chan is set to portray a mainland policeman rather than the character who featured in past installments, who hailed from Hong Kong.

"I've played policemen many times before, but I've never shot a film which focused on the life of a mainland policeman. So this time, I get the chance to fulfill this kind of role," Chan posted on his Weibo microblog account.

The film is set for release in 2013.
