Actor Jackie Chan has committed to visiting the rogue Iranian regime, according to a report from the Iranian outlet ISNA. The story is headlined, "Jackie Chan: I will definitely come to Iran."

"International action superstar, Jackie Chan said he would definitely visit Iran," the report reads. "In his short interview with Iranian Students’ News Agency (ISNA) reporter in Malaysia, Jackie Chan said he had tried so many times to come to Iran in past years."

Chan reportedly told the outlet, “There is only one Jackie Chan. The whole world needs me. I also know that I belong to world right now. Whenever I have time I come. Definitely I come.”

But the international star was non-committal about working with Iranian movie-makers. “I don’t know right now. Let me go to Iran first,” Chan reportedly said.

Chan is famous for performing his own stunts on screen and has starred in movies such as Rush Hour and Mr. Nice Guy.
