The Chinese co-production also has John Cho and Jimmy O. Yang in talks to star.

Jackie Chan and Constance Wu will voice-star in Sony Pictures Animation's Wish Dragon, a contemporary retelling of the classic genie-in-a-bottle tale from One Thousand and One Nights.

Natasha Liu Bordizzo, Jimmy Wong and Bobby Lee will also voice-star, with John Cho and Jimmy O. Yang in talks to join the cast.

The feature, which is aiming for a 2019 theatrical release in China, is a Chinese co-production with Chan's Beijing-based Sparkle Roll Media Corporation and Base Animation. A U.S. and international release are also planned. 

Chris Appelhans will direct, with Aron Warner (the Shrek franchise) and Chris Bremble producing. Ian Sugarman will executive produce.

Sony Pictures Animation is gearing up for the release of the third Hotel Transylvania installment and the Miles Morales-centered Spider-Man pic.
