Jackie Chan is ready to share more stories about his amazing life and career. The star of blockbusters such as Rush Hour and Kung Fu Panda has a memoir coming out in November.

Gallery Books told the Associated Press on Thursday that Never Grow Up is a "candid" account of everything from his youth with the China Drama Academy to his "numerous" near-death experiences on and off camera.

The 64-year-old Chan will also write about making movies in Hong Kong and Hollywood and of his imperfections as a family man, according to Gallery, a Simon & Schuster imprint.

Chan's other films include a remake of The Karate Kid and the Police Story series. His previous books include I Am Jackie Chan: My Life in Action, a memoir published in 1998.
