Jackie Chan's going round the world in 80 days

From the Hollywood reporter...

Jackie Chan will star in Walden Media's "Around the World in 80 Days," based on the Jules Verne novel, which Frank Coraci ("The Wedding Singer") will direct. A domestic distributor is expected to come aboard shortly. The project, being tailored for Chan, is about the Englishman Phileas Fogg, who sets out to travel the world in an unprecedented 80 days. With him comes his new valet (Chan), and the duo embark on an adventure to exotic places and cultures. Michael D. Weiss and David Titcher are the original writers of the script. In keeping with Walden's educational mandate, "80 Days" will stay true to Verne's classic adaptation, including the time period, which is set in the late 18th century. Chan, repped by Talent Entertainment Group, next stars in DreamWorks Pictures' "The Tuxedo" and Touchstone Pictures/Spyglass Entertainment's "Shanghai Knights." Coraci, repped by Endeavor, also directed "The Waterboy." Walden is in production on "Holes," which Columbia Pictures will distribute. Walden had no comment.

So who's playing Fogg?

Ralph Finnes?
Hugh Grant?
Jeremy Irons?
Freddie Prinz Jr?

Hey, don't knock the cartoon version. That Cat Princess was pretty foxy if you ask me.

I expect slightly more fighting than in the original movie, don't you think?

If it's set in modern times there's an awful amount of the planet they'll have to avoid.
